The Eno Center for Transportation announced today the appointment of Thomas Prendergast to its Board of Directors. Mr. Prendergast currently serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of STV, Inc.
Mr. Prendergast brings more than 40 years of experience to Eno’s Board. Over the course of his career, he has served in a variety of leadership roles in New York City, Chicago, and Vancouver, BC. He has served as chairman and CEO of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and President of the New York City Transit Authority. He was instrumental in securing the capital that helped build the Second Avenue Subway and oversaw the restoration of the system after it was severely damaged in 2012 by Hurricane Sandy. In his current position, Mr. Prendergast works on major public transportation initiatives and is responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with transit agencies across the United States and Canada.
“Eno is very excited that Mr. Prendergast has joined our Board of Directors. His experience and knowledge of transportation is invaluable to our organization. I have no doubt that he will have a very positive impact on our work,” said Robert Puentes, President and CEO.
The Eno Board of Directors has also re-elected former U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Norman Mineta to the board.
Secretary Mineta is widely recognized for his accomplishments as Mayor of San Jose, California, as a Member of Congress, and as Secretary of Transportation and U.S. Secretary of Commerce. Among his numerous accomplishments, Secretary Mineta received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in this country, and the Wright Brothers Memorial Trophy.
“Eno is delighted that Secretary Mineta will serve another term on the board. His years of experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm are irreplaceable. We’re happy to have his help for a bit longer,” added Eno Board Chairman, James Burnley.
Eno is also saying goodbye to three board members. David Plavin and Eugene Pentimonti are ending their terms on the Board of Directors. Joel Oppenheimer will be joining Eno’s Board of Advisors.
