MBTA CEO Luis Manuel Ramirez
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority
BOSTON — An veteran executive from General Electric and a business turnaround expert will head up the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority beginning Sept. 12. The Boston-based transit agency has named Luis Manuel Ramirez as its new general manager and CEO.

Ramirez has more than 30 years of experience in executive and business leadership and most recently managed his strategic and turnaround business consultancy firm.

Prior to managing his own firm, Ramirez worked at General Electric from 2000 to 2012, where he was promoted into several executive leadership roles. He finished his career as president of the company’s energy industrial solutions business.

MBTA leadership believes Ramirez’ executive experience will help transform the agency into a more efficient and effective organization.

“I am excited about joining a great team at the T to build upon the progress they have already made,” says Ramirez. “Going forward, we need financial discipline, we need operational excellence, and we also need strategy. But in everything we do, the overriding objective will be to put the customer first,” says Ramirez.
