He has been CEO since April 2012. Under his leadership, the project "got off to a strong start" due to his energy and enthusiasm, said HART Chair Colleen Hanabusa.

HART is overseeing a project to build a 20-mile elevated rail system in Honolulu. The cost of the project has jumped from $5.2 billion in 2012 to $8.3 billion by recent estimates, according to Honolulu Civil Beat.

The news website also reported that Mike Formby was appointed interim leader of HART. A member of HART's board, Formby is the director of transportation for the city and county of Honolulu.
