James Wagner
Chief of Performance Strategy and Innovation

Mr. Wagner leads the Mayor's Office for Performance Strategy and Innovation. His office is focused on using data to drive the organization toward strategic outcomes and remove barriers for the units of the city to create innovative solutions.

He previously worked with INCOG on programs to improve transit and bicycle/pedestrian transportation options.  Most recently, he led the effort to create a regional Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan, commonly known as the GO Plan. His prior work includes the development of the Tulsa’s first Regional Transit System Plan, commonly known as Fast Forward and the Peoria Bus Rapid Transit project, which was approved for construction by Tulsa voters in 2013. The efforts of the Fast Forward plan have been recognized by numerous national awards for public outreach and planning. 

In 2012 Mr. Wagner was recognized by Oklahoma Magazine as a Top 40 Under 40 and by the Tulsa Business Journal as a Tulsa 40 award recipient. He has also been recognized as one of the nation’s top 20 transportation graduate students as a Eno Transportation Fellow.  

In 2015, he was a participant in the Mine Fellowship, a 9-month intensive program focused on social innovation. The resulting project, Modus, focused on the issue of lack of transportation for Tulsa teens, and was awarded a United Way Social Innovation Grant in October 2016. 

He holds a B.S. in Finance from Oklahoma State University and a Masters of City & Regional Planning and Civil Engineering from Georgia Tech in Atlanta. He is a frequent bicycle commuter. He lives in Tulsa with his wife and three children.
