Governor Cuomo Announces Janno Lieber to Serve as MTA’s Acting Board Chair and CEO
New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced Janno Lieber will serve as Acting Board Chair and CEO of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority, effective July 31, while legislation to proceed with outgoing New York City Transit Interim President Sarah Feinberg’s nomination as Board Chair awaits approval from the State Senate. Legislation already passed by the Assembly would split the role of MTA Board Chair and CEO. Governor Cuomo announced in June he will nominate Feinberg as the first woman to serve as Board Chair and Lieber as CEO, pending Senate confirmation. Patrick Foye, who has led the agency as President and then Chairman and CEO for the past four years, will leave the agency July 30 and will later step into a new role as Interim President and CEO of Empire State Development.
