NJ TRANSIT board selects William Crosbie as new executive director

Posted on April 7, 2016

In a unanimous vote, the NJ TRANSIT Board of Directors appointed William (Bill) Crosbie as its new executive director, effective on or about April 25, 2016.

Crosbie succeeds Dennis J. Martin, who has served as the agency’s interim executive director since Dec. 2015. Martin will resume his previous position as VP/GM of NJ TRANSIT’s Bus Operations Division.

“I would like to thank Governor Christie and the NJ TRANSIT Board of Directors for this tremendous opportunity to serve the more than 900,000 people who utilize the New Jersey Transit system each year,” said Crosbie. “I am anxious to roll up my sleeves and stand shoulder to shoulder with the men and women of NJ TRANSIT to address the service, safety, equipment and facility needs of our customers and our infrastructure.”

Prior his appointment, Crosbie served as president/CEO as well as regional director, North America, for SYSTRA USA, an international transportation engineering consulting firm. During his tenure, he was responsible for leading day-to-day operations as well as the strategic development of the firm.

In addition to serving as VP, railroad programs, for the Parsons Corp., Crosbie spent more than seven years as the chief operating officer of Amtrak where he directed the transportation, engineering (infrastructure), mechanical (rolling stock), police and security, environmental, health, and safety functions.
