By Eileen Houlihan, senior writer/editor, ARTBA

Transurban’s President North America Jennifer Aument is one of the Washington Business Journal’s 2019 “Women Who Mean Business.” Now in its 16th year, the awards program honors 25 C-suite executives and entrepreneurs from among hundreds of women nominees who stood out for “dedication in their careers, their philanthropic efforts and their personal lives.”

Aument and the other honorees were selected by a panel of judges based on criteria including commitment to community service, strong leadership skills, and continuing success in their field. They will be recognized at an Oct. 3 awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.

Aument is the immediate past president of ARTBA’s Public Private Partnership (P3) division. She joined Transurban in 2006 and has led the use of P3s for infrastructure funding in the U.S. by pioneering a number of innovative financing and technology strategies in development of major transportation projects, including the $3 billion 495 and 95 Express Lanes in Virginia. She is also a commissioner for the Virginia Port Authority.
