MTA Chair and Chief Executive Officer Thomas Prendergast appointed James Ferrara interim president of MTA New York City Transit (NYCT). Ferrara, who currently serves as president of the MTA Bridges and Tunnels division, will take over once Carmen Bianco retires Aug. 21, NYCT officials said in a press release.In 1997, Ferrara started his career with the MTA as a Bridges and Tunnels officer, and was promoted to president of the division in 2010. Donald Spero, executive vice president and chief financial officer of MTA Bridges and Tunnels, will serve as acting president of the division, NYCT officials said."Running MTA New York City Transit is one of the most complicated and critical jobs in the entire MTA, and Jim’s excellent judgment and strong managerial skills make me confident the agency will be in good hands while we find Transit’s next permanent President," Prendergast said.The agency is carrying out an international search to fill the position, but is evaluating internal candidates, as well, NYCT officials said.
