Davey, Rich MassDOT Rail @ Transit

Posted by Richard A. Davey, MassDOT Secretary and Chief Executive Officer

Today I have the honor of assuming the job of Secretary and CEO of MassDOT and succeeding Secretary Jeff Mullan.  On behalf the 10,000 men and women strong of the DOT, I want to thank Jeff Mullan for his leadership, service and friendship.  Jeff lived, breathed and loved transportation and deeply cared about the success of the organization and the success of each employee.  He is not going far, but he will be missed.
 
But this is what MassDOT is all about:  cultivating leadership throughout the organization, pushing change, and finding new, better ways of doing business.  MassDOT is bigger than any one Secretary, Administrator, or General Manager.  We have been and will continue to be focused on a mission: to create a safety-focused, mission-driven, employee empowered, customer-centric organization.  

Over the coming weeks and months I look forward to meeting you in the districts, at the local branch, T station or around the halls of 10 Park Plaza.  A hallmark of my management style is summed up in the phrase: “Tell me what I need to know, not what you think I want to hear.”  So, be prepared to share with me the problems that you see and your ideas on how to solve those problems.
 
This is both a challenging and exciting time for public transportation.  Together, we can continue to create a culture of safety and transparency, improve service for our customers, and make MassDOT the premier transportation agency in the nation.
