WASHINGTON — Board members at the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority have named Geoffrey Cherrington as the agency's inspector general. With unanimous board support, he will be formally appointed to the position on March 23.
Cherrington currently serves as the assistant inspector general for investigations at the U.S. Department of State where he is responsible for managing worldwide investigations and other law enforcement efforts within the State Department. He has held other high-ranking positions at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, General Services Administration, Department of Defense, and U.S. Army.
Metro managers say that Cherrington’s near 30 years of experience in government will bring a wealth of knowledge and investigative expertise to the agency during a time when it is most needed.
