During his 28-year transportation career, he headed the Port Authority of Allegheny County in Pittsburgh for seven years and was assistant director/general superintendent of the Port Authority Trans-Hudson Corporation.

He succeeds Paul J. Ballard, who left MTA and RTA to become president and chief executive officer of the Fort Worth Transportation Authority. MTA/RTA Chief Financial Officer Ed Oliphant headed the agencies on an interim basis.
