CTA board to name current EVP Carter as acting president on Friday
Dorval Carter, the CTA's executive vice president for operations support, will be appointed acting president at a special board meeting set for this Friday, according to the agenda posted Wednesday on the CTA Web site. (Hat tip to my brother Dan.)
Carter returned to the CTA in 2000 as the executive vice president for management and performance, after serving as one of the top lawyers at the Federal Transit Administration. So it's a good bet he can be expected to continue Huberman's performance management programs. Carter previously had worked as an attorney for the CTA.
Meanwhile, Greg Hinz reported on his Crain's blog Tuesday that Dennis Anosike, the CTA's chief financial officer, has resigned. No word yet whether he'll be moving to CPS, but my limited research shows he was NOT hired by Huberman. (As an aside, the first hit for "Dennis Anosike" at Google is a page at Huffington Post's Fundrace site that show a person name Dennis Anosike donated $500 to the "presidential elections 2008." I love the Internet.)
There certainly are quite a few people whom Huberman hired, some of whom no doubt will follow him. I just hope the brain drain isn't too severe and Carter can keep things going. A good manager needs a good CFO, for instance.
