WASHINGTON, D.C. — Less than three weeks after he fired 20 managers in a shakeup at the top ranks of Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, GM Paul J. Wiedefeld hired two new people to his team, The Washington Post reported.
Wiedefeld announced the hiring of John Kuo as chief, internal business operations. As part of his job, Kuo, who currently is associate administrator for administration at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, will oversee human resources, information technology, procurement and labor relations at the transit agency, according to the report.
Last week, Wiedefeld also announced he had hired Laura Mason, a former Bechtel executive, to manage the safe track rebuilding program. She will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the year-long program that began over the weekend and will continue through March, reported The Washington Post. For the full story, click here.
