August 15-The MBTA has tapped a long-time General Electric executive as its new general manager, installing an experienced manager and business consultant as the fifth leader of the agency since Gov. Charlie Baker took office.

Ramirez's selection was announced at a late-morning press conference.

Ramirez will succeed interim General Manager Steve Poftak on September 12.

Though Ramirez does not have a background in public transit, the MBTA said that throughout his career, he has worked with a variety of domestic and global stakeholders, from government entities to unionized workforces.

Luis Manuel Ramirez now heads the TodoModo Group consulting firm, and is former president of the Global Power Equipment Group, an engineering and manufacturing company.

Ramirez has worked at Unisys Corp., Siemens AG and General Electric Corp., where he rose to CEO of its Energy Industrial Solutions business during his 12 years there. "His unique personal background, deep exposure to a range of challenges and constituencies, and proven leadership skills make Luis the right person to lead the MBTA as it continues to become the world-class transit agency our riders expect and deserve".

A business executive with experience in corporate turnarounds but none in transportation was hired Tuesday as the head of the Boston area's troubled public transit system. Following that winter, acting General Manager Beverly Scott resigned. Brian Shortsleeve followed DePaola before suddenly departing this past July. In response, Republican Gov. Charlie Baker created a fiscal control board to oversee the agency.

"Even in the limited time I've spent with him, I can see that Luis understands and appreciates the hard work and talent of our employees who keep this system running every day", said Gonneville.
