"What's most remarkable about the career of Roger Snoble is that his recent appointment as the head of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) marks the first time he has taken over a top executive position by acclaimrather than by default. Widely regarded as one of the country's top transit managers, Snoble was heavily courted by the MTA's outgoing CEO, Julian Burke, and eventually selected over four other candidates by a unanimous board vote. This stands in stark contrast to the quietly ambitious and opportunistic routes that led to his previous stints running mass transit systems inDallas and San Diego."
