Williams named interim MTA executive director/CEO

Posted on May 21, 2009

New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Chairman, H. Dale Hemmerdinger, announced that Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) President Helena E. Williams will serve as interim executive director/CEO, pending MTA Board approval at its regularly scheduled meeting May 27. Williams' appointment will remain in effect until a new chairman/CEO is nominated by Gov. Paterson and confirmed by the State Senate.

"I am honored to be asked to step in temporarily - pending approval of the MTA Board - to serve in this position while continuing my duties as President of the LIRR," said Williams. "As we all know, the subway, bus, bridge, tunnel and commuter rail systems are the lifeblood of our city and of the entire New York metropolitan region. I've spent much of my career at the MTA, so this will be an exciting challenge."   

A labor lawyer by training, Williams has served as president of Long Island Bus and the LIRR during a combined 15 years at the MTA. She also served as deputy county executive to Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi. Williams will retain her title and responsibilities as LIRR president.
