Lhota, 64, who continued to serve as senior vice president and chief of staff at NYU Langone Medical Center, returned to the agency a year ago after running it in 2012, when he oversaw the recovery after Hurricane Sandy flooded the system's subway and vehicle tunnels. He also remained on the board of directors of the Madison Square Garden Co., whose holdings include Radio City Music Hall, the New York Knicks and the New York Rangers.
