Welcome Eno’s New Staff!
July 11, 2019
Over the last few months, Eno has welcomed three new staff members to our team. They will help Eno continue to grow our professional development programs and ensure our members have the insightful research they depend on. We are excited to introduce them to you and hope you’ll join us in warmly welcoming them.
Dyan Wolfe joins Eno as our Director of Professional Development Programs. Dyan will be responsible for Eno’s leadership courses and transportation-centered organization and workforce development programs. Dyan will oversee Eno’s respected training intensive leadership programs such as the Transit Senior Executive Program and the Transit Mid Manager Program. Furthermore, Dyan will take the lead on the EnoMax Multi-Agency Exchange Program, a peer exchange and network-building program among transit agencies that fosters innovation and best practices. Under Dyan’s guidance, we plan to invigorate and enhance our current leadership programs as well as expand the reach and impact of these highly regarded initiatives.
Dyan, a Regent University and University of Maryland graduate, comes to us most recently from Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) where she was Director of Training & Administration. She is also pursuing her Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership from the University of Maryland – Eastern Shore. In her spare time, Dyan is actively engaged in volunteer work with a youth leadership and entrepreneurship program, It Takes Two, Inc., where she directs, plans, and coordinates college and career access paths for disadvantaged and at-risk youth. Dyan enjoys reading, creative non-fiction writing, and lending her voice to public domain books recorded as free audio-books for the visually impaired.
Ike Obi joins Eno as our Communications Manager and is responsible for Eno’s communications, including our working with the media and dissemination of Eno’s research and analysis. Ike’s past experiences in digital communications and public affairs will be put to good use as he shares Eno’s valuable research and leadership resources with the world.
Prior to joining Eno, Ike worked as a Public Affairs Specialist at the U.S. Department of Transportation and as a Digital Communications Specialist at Taxpayers for Common Sense. In these roles, he discovered his interest in transportation and infrastructure and how it connects all people to opportunity. Ike is a proud Hoya and a Purdue University graduate. In his spare time, Ike likes to travel, stay up to date with new tech, and argue intensely with his fellow transportation nerds on social media.
Romic Aevaz joins Eno as a Policy Analyst, where he will be conducting research on a variety of topics relating to transportation policy. Romic is a recent graduate of The University of Texas in Austin, where he completed his B.A. in Government and Humanities. Prior to joining Eno, Romic worked as a research intern at the Brookings Institution, where he contributed to research on the workforce implications of autonomous vehicles and the role of infrastructure policy in gubernatorial elections. During his time as an undergraduate in Austin, Romic also worked at the Mayor’s Office, where he was involved in the implementation of various strategic mobility initiatives as well as stakeholder outreach during the city’s land use plan overhaul.
Romic is excited to continue pursuing his passion for transportation and working at the intersection of policy and research. In his spare time, Romic enjoys traveling, exploring DC’s culinary scene, and indoor cycling.
