NEW YORK – MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota appointed Catherine Rinaldi as president of Metro-North Railroad. She has served as acting president since July 2017 and was previously the railroad’s executive vice president beginning in 2015.
Rinaldi served as general counsel for the MTA between 2003 and 2007 before taking on that role at the Long Island Rail Road through 2011. In that year she became chief of staff of the MTA, a post she held until 2015.
Lhota said Rinaldi is “the best person to continue to push forward the progress that Metro-North has made in renewing the railroad and enhancing the confidence of its customers.”
MTA Managing Director Veronique “Ronnie” Hakim said Rinaldi “inspires confidence in those around her through a mixture of leadership by example, evenhandedness and commitment to core principles. She never loses sight of concern for customer experience.”
