Canally selected as interim leader of transit partnership

Thursday, April 21, 2022 by Jo Clifton

On Wednesday, the board of directors of the Austin Transit Partnership chose Greg Canally as interim executive director. Canally, the agency’s current CFO and chief development officer, will take over May 2 from Randy Clarke, Capital Metro president and CEO, who has been serving as ATP’s first executive director. In a news release, Veronica Castro de Barrera, chair of ATP’s board of directors, praised Canally, saying, “Greg will provide the steady leadership and smooth, effective and efficient transition that ATP – and all of Austin – need as we work to implement voters’ vision for this program. This will be a critical year for ATP, along with our partners at the city of Austin and Cap Metro, as we all work together to deliver on the promise of Project Connect.” The board also approved a resolution requesting that City Council and the Capital Metro board consider amending ATP’s articles of incorporation to add Capital Metro’s president and CEO or their designee as a non-voting ex officio board member “to foster and promote enhanced collaboration and communication among the parties.” The resolution also asks Castro de Barrera and ATP Board Member Tony Elkins to work with ATP staff to develop a recommendation for the board on how to pursue a leadership search for the permanent executive director.
