Officials at New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced leadership appointments on Thursday as the agency embarks on an emergency plan to fix New York City's subway system. MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota, who took the helm in June, said Patrick Foye would join the agency as president after Foye leaves his position as executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in August. Lhota also said long-time transit official Veronique "Ronnie" Hakim, who had been the MTA's interim executive director, would be named managing director. Foye and Hakim will be charged with implementing an $836 million plan announced July 25 by Lhota to stabilize the New York City's unreliable and dirty subways, which have increasingly faced delays because of failing World War Two-era signaling systems.
