In a unanimous vote, the NJ Transit Board of Directors approved Kevin Corbett as the next Executive Director of NJT during the regularly scheduled Board of Directors meeting today. The appointment is effective starting on Monday, February 19, 2018.
“Kevin is taking on one of the toughest jobs in New Jersey – turning NJT around and restoring it as a world-class transportation agency that our commuters can rely on. Every New Jerseyan who takes the train or bus every day, and the thousands of employees who show up for work, deserves visionary leadership committed to getting this system right. Kevin’s confirmation signals that we have begun the difficult process of rebuilding NJT and, in time, regaining commuters’ trust in the system,” said Governor Phil Murphy.
Prior to incoming Executive Director Corbett’s appointment, he served as Vice President, Cross Services at AECOM, one of the world’s premier transportation and infrastructure companies. In this role, Mr. Corbett drew on the extensive resources from across AECOM’s various business lines to provide optimal solutions for AECOM’s clients.
