Jesse Samberg is a Shared Services Fellow with the IBM Center for The Business of Government.

Jesse comes to the Center after more than 25 years with New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) where he was the Director of their Shared Services initiatives. In this role, he created a new stand-alone shared service center to process all administrative functions, resulting in savings of $25 million annually. Prior to that role he was the Budget Deputy Director for MTA's Budget Office, where he was responsible for managing an annual budget of over $13 billion, as well as representing MTA on the creation of the statewide energy market, the NYISO, and other all-agency strategic initiatives.

Jesse’s other senior management roles at the MTA included CFO of the MTA Card Company, a subsidiary of MTA created to launch and support the MTA’s MetroCard fare collection project, and as Deputy Director of Real Estate where he created the first database of the MTA’s extensive property records, some of which went back 150 years. Before attending the Yale School of Management, Jesse founded several Head Start programs in the Greater New Haven area.
