Schultz sworn in to STB


Michelle Schultz was sworn in yesterday as the newest member of the Surface Transportation Board (STB).

During the past 14 years, Schultz served in leadership roles at the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA). Most recently, she was the Philadelphia transit agency's deputy general counsel. Prior to that, she served as SEPTA's legislative affairs director and was the agency's representative to the Pennsylvania Public Transportation Association and the Keystone Transportation Funding Coalition, according to an STB press release.

Before joining SEPTA, Schultz was an associate at White and Williams LLP, where she presented businesses from diverse industries with a focus on financial matters, including bankruptcy, litigation and collection. Prior to her work in private practice, she served as a judicial law clerk for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and prior to that, as a judicial law clerk for the late Vincent Cirillo, president judge emeritus of the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Schultz's nomination to the STB on Nov. 18, 2020.
