The Macon-Bibb County Transit Authority will have a familiar face in charge of its day-to-day operations.

The authority’s board of directors announced Tuesday the selection of its chairman, Craig Ross, as president and CEO of the transit system.

Ross takes over the role left vacant after Rick Jones resigned in June.

Ross has served as chairman of the authority for five of his 21 years on the board. The Macon resident has spent the last 11 years working at Sunmark Bank as a special assets manager and branch manager. His first day as president and CEO will be Nov. 15, a release said.

“I look forward to working with the employees responsible for transporting citizens around our city, with the citizens we serve, and with leaders on the local, state and federal levels,” Ross said in a statement. “My vision is to build and grow the Macon Transit Authority into one of Georgia's premier transit authorities, one that will make everyone proud."
