NYC business leader Hemmerdinger might be MTA's next chairman

New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer recently nominated H. Dale Hemmerdinger as chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).

Hemmerdinger currently is president of The Hemmerdinger Corp., a New York City-based real estate development company, and president of Atco Properties & Management Inc. He also serves as a board member for Valley National Bank, trustee for New York University and the New York City Police Foundation, and executive vice president of the Realty Foundation.

“Dale has been a champion of fiscal stability, intelligent long-term planning and management accountability … throughout his business career,” said Spitzer in a prepared statement. “His charge is to ensure that the MTA becomes known for those qualities, as well.”
