D.C. transit authority resumes search for new CEO

The Washington (D.C.) Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Board of Directors said late last week that it has resumed its search for a new Metro general manager and CEO.

“The board is committed to re-energizing the search for a new chief executive who will provide Metro with effective leadership, emphasizing safety as the top priority, exceptional financial management and the first-class service delivery for our customers that the region deserves,” Metro Board Chairman Mortimer Downey said.

Before the search was re-launched, the board gathered public feedback from Metro riders, community advocates, business leaders and stakeholders. The board will now consider candidates with financial-management experience, as well as those from outside the government and transit fields.

A hire is expected by fall. Those interested in applying should send a cover letter and resume to wmata@lochlinpartners.com.

Jack Requa has been serving as interim general manager and CEO since Richard Sarles' January retirement. Requa will continue in this capacity until a permanent replacement is selected.
