President Joe Biden has nominated Jennifer Homendy to be chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) for a term of three years.

If approved by the U.S. Senate, Homendy will succeed Robert Sumwalt III. She has served as an NTSB member since August 2018.

Homendy has more than 25 years of experience in transportation safety, including nearly two decades supporting the critical safety mission of the NTSB, according to a White House press release.

Prior to her appointment to the board, Homendy served more than 14 years as Democratic staff director for the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines and Hazardous Materials.

She previously held positions with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO and American Iron and Steel Institute.
