BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — CATS has called off its national search for a CEO before it even began.
Earlier today, a CATS board committee recommended that interim CEO, Bob Mirabito, get the job.
Mirabito stepped in as the interim over the summer. He started without any previous transportation experience, but he has been praised for his leadership during a tough time for the transit agency.
He could get the permanent CEO job as early as Tuesday of next week when the full CATS board has its next meeting.
