Prendergast nominated to lead N.Y. MTA

Posted on April 16, 2013

Thomas F. Prendergast, president of New York City Transit (NYCT), was nominated by New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to serve as chairman/CEO of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).

Prendergast has served more than three years as president of NYCT and as the MTA interim executive director since Jan. 1, 2013. He replaces Joseph Lhota.

In 2011, the Governor’s MTA Search Advisory Committee conducted a national search to find and recommend the most talented candidates to lead the MTA. Prendergast was highly recommended by the committee, and committee members were consulted in his nomination that was announced last week. The advisory committee was composed of leading public transportation experts and management professionals in the public and private sectors.

The Governor's appointment of an MTA chairman and CEO is subject to Senate confirmation.

Prendergast is a career public transit officer and former MTA executive who was appointed president of NYCT in November 2009. Prendergast, then the CEO at TransLink in Vancouver, B.C., returned to New York and took office in December 2009.
