Greanias resigns from Houston Metro

Posted on December 24, 2012

The Houston Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro) board of directors voted to accept the resignation of Metro President/CEO George Greanias, effective Dec. 31, 2012.

Board members offered, and Greanias is agreeing to, a six-month contract for his consulting services as the search for a new president/ CEO begins.

Greanias was brought to Metro as CEO after leading Houston Mayor Annise Parker’s Metro Transition Team. Among his tasks upon first taking office was reorganizing the agency’s top management, securing $900 million in federal funding for the MetroRail program and ensuring that the expansion program got back on track.

During his tenure the organization also was able to resolve “Buy America” issues, address Federal Transit Administration concerns and place the General Mobility Program on a pay-as-you go basis.

Metro Executive VP Thomas C. Lambert will serve as interim executive for the organization.
