JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Transportation Authority's CEO, Nathaniel P. Ford, Sr. announced today an overhaul of the transit agency's organizational structure.
The plans call for a chief of staff and five vice presidents to report directly to the CEO. The vice president positions include Long-range Planning and System Development, Transit Operations, Finance and Administration, External Affairs and Compliance and Risk Management.
"Our new structure will allow for quicker decision-making, and has clearer lines of responsibility and accountability," Ford said. "This flatter and more efficient organization will allow us all to better serve our customers and build the kind of world-class transit agency that Jacksonville and Northeast Florida deserve."
Ford spent the past two months meeting with stakeholders to better understand JTA's history and culture. As part of the restructuring, the new vice president positions will be advertised locally and nationally. JTA will begin interviewing for the posts this month and the agency-wide restructuring is expected to be completed by April 30.
