NFTA Promotes Minkel to Executive Director
The Board of Commissioners of the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) in Buffalo, NY, announced the promotion of Kimberley A. Minkel to the agency’s top position, executive director.
Minkel joined NFTA in October 2002 as its director of health, safety, and environmental quality, with responsibility for the safety and protection of its workers, riders, the public, and the environment. For example, an environmental project she oversaw—using wetland treatment technology to reclaim spent deicing fluid in stormwater runoff at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport—received the Diamond Award in the Environmental Category by the New York branch of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) and the national ACEC’s Honor Award.
She has more than 20 years of experience in the environmental and safety regulations business. Minkel has a bachelor’s degree from Niagara University and a master of business administration degree with a concentration in management from Canisius College.
“I am looking forward to working closely with our 1,500 dedicated employees to ensure that NFTA is doing all we can to provide the highest quality and safest transportation services possible,” Minkel said.
