NJ Transit names Martin as interim executive director


New Jersey Transit's board last week appointed Dennis Martin interim executive director. His appointment took effect yesterday.

He takes the reins from Veronique "Ronnie" Hakim, who departed yesterday to become president of MTA New York City Transit.

Martin has more than 30 years of transit industry experience, NJ Transit officials said in a press release. Since fall 2014, he's served as vice president and general manager of NJ Transit's bus operations, as well as general manager of NJ Transit Mercer Inc. and NJ Transit Morris Inc.

From 1998 to 2003, Martin served as director of terminal operations for the agency's bus operations, where he directed bus operations within the Port Authority Bus Terminal, the busiest transportation terminal in the United States, NJ Transit officials said.

During his tenure director of terminal operations, Martin led the evacuation coordination out of New York City during the August 2003 regional blackout.

As senior director of NJ Transit's customer resources, Martin directed the development and implementation of corporate-wide customer service strategies, agency officials said.
