New leaders appointed at Md. transportation agencies

The Hogan administration today announced new leaders have been appointed to run the Maryland Transportation Authority (MTA) and the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA).

The MDTA board this morning voted to appoint Milton Chaffee as the authority’s executive director. Chaffee currently serves as administrator at MVA.

Transportation Secretary Pete K. Rahn appointed Christine Nizer, who currently serves as the chief deputy administrator, as the new MVA administrator.

In addition to his role as administrator, Chaffee has served at MVA in several capacities since 2002, including as the governor’s highway safety representative, chief deputy administrator, deputy administrator of operations, and director of employee and administrative services.

Nizer joined the MVA in 2006 as associate administrator for driver and vehicle policies & programs. She was promoted to deputy administrator for central operations and safety programs in 2010 and to chief deputy administrator in March 2014.
