CTA's Huberman resigns; Carter steps in as interim president


On Friday, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) appointed Dorval Carter Jr. to serve as acting president while the board searches for a successor to Ron Huberman, who resigned last week after accepting a position as chief executive of Chicago Public Schools. Huberman had served CTA since May 2007.

Most recently vice president of operations support, Carter was responsible for overseeing the planning and operations functions of several departments, including human resources, purchasing, public affairs, government and community relations, and finance. His familiarity with CTA issues and extensive transit experience will ensure a smooth transition period until a new president is named, according to the agency.

Prior to joining CTA in 2000, Carter spent 10 years at the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), where he served as assistant chief counsel for legislation and regulation, and managed the office responsible for preparing and directing the agency's federal legislative and regulatory agenda. He also served as regional counsel for the FTA Region 5 office in Chicago.
