Michael Huerta, who finished his term as FAA administrator early this month, has joined Macquarie Capital as a senior advisor, the firm has announced. “Michael has an exceptional reputation as a federal administrator in U.S. transportation,” said Nick Butcher, a leader of the Infrastructure and Energy Group at Macquarie.”His deep industry experience, relationships and insights will greatly benefit our clients and partners as we pursue initiatives in U.S. airport and other transportation infrastructure.” The firm says its North American infrastructure group works on landmark projects such as tunnels and bridges, advising on transactions of more than $21 billion over the past seven years.

In his new role, Huerta will help the firm to “build on existing initiatives and seek new opportunities in U.S. transportation infrastructure,” according to Macquarie’s news release. Before joining the FAA, Huerta had worked in both the public and private sectors. He served as president of the Transportation Solutions Group at Affiliated Computer Services (now Conduent), and prior to that held senior positions in the Department of Transportation in Washington. He served as executive director of the Port of San Francisco from 1989 to 1993, and was commissioner of New York City’s Department of Ports, International Trade and Commerce from 1986 to 1989.
