The Commissioner of Transport for London has management responsibility for Transport for London (TfL) and hence for the transport system throughout the City of London and Greater London in the United Kingdom. TfL is controlled by a board whose members are appointed by the Mayor of London, who also chairs the Board. The Commissioner reports to the board and leads a management team with individual functional responsibilities.
The post was initially held, from 2001, by Robert Kiley. His CV included the CIA, CEO of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, deputy mayor of Boston, Chairman and CEO of the New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority and President and CEO of the New York City Partnership. He was credited as being the architect of the revival of Boston and New York's ailing public transport systems in the 1970s and 1980s respectively.
Kiley announced his resignation in late 2005, and was replaced in February 2006 by Peter Hendy, previously TfL's Director of Surface Transport.
