Homendy Becomes NTSB Chair

Jennifer Homendy has become the 15th chair of the National Transportation Safety Board.

She joined the transportation safety agency on Aug. 20, 2018, after spending 14 years as the Democratic staff director of the House Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines and Hazardous Materials.

She previously held various positions with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the Transportation Trades Department of the AFL-CIO, and the American Iron and Steel Institute. She is the fourth woman to lead the NTSB and one of 11 women who have served as board members.

Homendy succeeds Robert Sumwalt, who retired last month.
