Statement from the Partnership for New York City on MTA Leadership Appointments

“As President of the MTA, Patrick Foye is a great addition to the strong team that Governor Cuomo has put in place to deal with the challenges of our aging and capacity-strained transit system. Foye brings deep knowledge of how to leverage the resources of the private sector to achieve a modern, high functioning system. The newly established Office of the Chairman with Managing Director Veronique Hakim and Chief Development Officer Janno Lieber demonstrates the MTA’s renewed commitment to improving service, ensuring a reliable modern subway system for riders, and transforming the culture of the MTA into a less bureaucratic and more entrepreneurial agency,” said Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO of the Partnership for New York City.
