Cap Metro names Allen interim pres./CEO

Posted on October 13, 2009

On Monday, the Austin, Texas-based Capital Metro Board of Directors named Doug Allen interim president/CEO. The appointment takes effect upon the retirement of current President/CEO Fred Gilliam at the end of this week. Allen currently serves as executive vice president/chief development officer for the agency.

With new appointments expected by the end of the year, the Board recommended waiting until January to begin a national search for Gilliam's replacement.

Allen joined Capital Metro in March 2008, bringing 30 years of transportation planning and development experience. He spent the majority of his career in the Dallas-Fort Worth area beginning at the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) in 1978. In 1984, he joined Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and was instrumental in developing plans for the DART light rail system and high occupancy vehicle network.

Allen is also a member of several professional organizations including the American Public Transportation Association, where he serves as vice chairman of the Policy and Planning Committee.
