NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced that Veronique Hakim will serve as Interim Executive Director of the Metropolitan Transportation Agency.

Cuomo says Hakim is a lifelong transportation professional who has spent more than 25 years at the MTA, including serving as President of the New York City Transit System since December 2015.

In making the announcement on Monday, Cuomo says Hakim will lead the agency that runs New York City’s transit system while a seven-person committee conducts a nationwide search for a permanent Chair and CEO.

Current MTA Chairman and CEO Thomas Prendergast is retiring on Tuesday after serving 25 years with the agency.
