Gov. Murphy nominates Corbett to Lead NJ Transit

Posted on January 31, 2018

Governor Phil Murphy nominated Kevin S. Corbett to serve as the executive director of NJ Transit.

Corbett currently serves as VP of Cross Services at global transportation and infrastructure company, AECOM. At AECOM, Corbett has had an oversight role on critical projects including Amtrak’s Gateway Project, the first phase of New York City’s Second Avenue Subway project, work on New York Penn Station, and PATH restoration after Superstorm Sandy.

Last week, Governor Murphy signed an Executive Order mandating an audit of NJ Transit to determine inefficiencies and areas where the agency can improve. As Executive Director, Corbett will help implement these recommendations and rework the agency’s finances, leadership structure, customer experience, and safety measures.

Before joining AECOM, Corbett served as the COO and exec. VP of Empire State Development Corp. and exec. dep. commissioner of the Department of Economic Development. In those roles, Corbett was responsible for New York State’s economic development programs and projects, including the redevelopment of Times Square, Moynihan Station, and the creation of Brooklyn Bridge Park. After September 11th, 2001, Corbett oversaw the economic recovery of Lower Manhattan.

Corbett currently serves on the Executive Committee of the Regional Plan Association as co-chair of its Transportation Committee. He also serves as the board president of the Maritime Association of the Port of New York and New Jersey, on the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, and as a chairman of The New York League of Conservation Voters.

Corbett was a fellow at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. He is a graduate of Georgetown University and serves as a Blue and Gold Officer for the U.S. Naval Academy. He and his wife Siobhan have three children and live in Mendham.
