Linda Watson, our new president and chief executive officer, stopped by the office for a few moments today. The building is buzzing with excitement as we wait for our new leader to take the helm. She officially starts on Monday.
Ms. Watson is busy settling in and getting better acquainted with the Austin area. Today, she scoped out the vacant CEO office that will soon be filled with her transit books, awards and family photos.
Starting next week, she’ll have a line out the door of staff waiting to greet her and help her dive right into the important issues facing the agency. Between the requests for meetings by employees, elected officials and community leaders, her calendar is filling up fast.
Ms. Watson is returning to Texas after her most recent gig as the chief executive officer of LYNX, the transit authority in Orlando. Click here to read more about her background and the search process that brought her to Capital Metro.
