Ging Ging Fernandez, PMP
For Ging Ging Fernandez, a leading RUC and transportation expert, the drive to do great work comes from a passion for connected communities. “I love that feeling when a plan comes together, and you know that you’ve arrived at a solution where all the pieces fit. I am motivated to keep this world together and functioning—and maybe even a little better in some ways—for the next generation. I see transportation as the way for me to do that,” she says.
With over 20 years of experience in the transportation and communications engineering industries, Ging Ging is a seasoned project manager with expertise in strategic planning for transportation pricing and payment programs, overseeing system deployments, and conducting transportation studies.
Ging Ging has a deep understanding of the requirements of operational systems for a broad range of RUC-supporting technologies, and her knowledge stems from firsthand experience with the nation’s largest RUC pilot test in Hawaii. She has overseen all aspects of a major outreach and research effort including statewide public meetings, stakeholder engagement and media management.
Her proudest professional accomplishment has been serving as a US Delegate at the International Telecommunications Union to negotiate protection of the Broadcast Satellite System spectrum, working on a team that developed a patented simulation method to model interference to the DirecTV satellite system. “I’m particularly proud of this accomplishment because through a combination of technical innovation, hard work, and cross-cultural relationship building we found a mutually agreeable solution that no one thought existed at the outset,” she says.
I love that feeling when a plan comes together just so and you know that you’ve arrived at a solution where all the pieces fit.
