Janno Lieber, who has run the MTA’s construction and development work since 2017, will take over as the authority’s acting chairman and chief executive when incumbent Pat Foye departs at the end of the month, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday.

Lieber, 59, had been Cuomo’s pick to lead MTA operations as part of a proposal to change state law, split the authority’s top job in half and appoint Sarah Feinberg chair. The state senate has so far refused to approve the change.

“Janno knows what it takes to make the MTA work for the millions of customers who rely on this system every day to get to their destination, and he will serve as Acting Board Chair and CEO,” Cuomo said in a statement.

Lieber served in the US Department of Transportation under President Clinton, and led the World Trade Center redevelopment for Silverstein Properties for 14 years.
