He succeeds Arlington businessman Victor Vandergriff, who served on the tollway board since 2007.
Haddad begins his service as the Plano-based tollway authority prepares to develop the extension of Texas 360 from Arlington to Mansfield, in a partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation.
Haddad’s term expires Aug. 31, 2014. He is a registered architect in Texas, Hawaii, Florida, California, New York and other states - and has been president of CHS Architects Inc. since the company was founded in 1984.
Haddad was appointed by the Tarrant County Commissioners Court on January 29. His past public service experience includes seven years on the Arlington Planning and Zoning Commission, including a role as past chairman.
He also served on the Super Bowl XLV Host Committee board of directors, chairman of the Arlington Chamber Foundation and former chairman of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce.
“Mojy’s knowledge as an architect and a planner will be very valuable to our board as we strive to meet North Texas’ growing need for transportation infrastructure,” tollway board chairman Kenneth Barr of Fort Worth said in a statement.
Haddad said he is “delighted to be involved with a visionary organization such as NTTA."
"As a new appointee," he said, "I look forward to working with other board members and staff in addressing the transportation and mobility challenges of North Texas.”
