The St. Louis Metro transit board last week announced its pick of Chesterfield Mayor John Nations, who is also a partner at the law firm Armstrong Teasdale, as the agency’s president and chief executive officer.

Nations led a campaign committee that raised funds to promote the successful April ballot measure that raised the area sales tax by a half-cent to support Metro operations and help fund expansion projects.

Nations takes over from Bob Baer, a former president of UniGroup Inc., who had served as interim CEO.
