After a nearly five-year hiatus from the public sector, Kim Paparello Vaccari in early April joined New Jersey Transit as deputy chief financial officer under the current CFO, Charlie Wedel. When Wedel retires later this year from his 18-year tenure at NJTransit, Paparello Vaccari will head the agency’s finance department.

NJTransit’s next CFO said she was looking to get back into a government position at a mass transit agency after heading Bank of America’s transportation group in its public finance department for over four years, beginning in April 2004. Before that, Paparello Vaccari was finance director for New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority from 1997 to 2003.
