TriMet’s Board of Directors appointed TriMet General Counsel Shelley Devine as interim GM of the transit agency. GM Neil McFarlane wrapped up his service on Feb. 21, 2018. He announced his retirement in October after more than seven years as GM, and some 27 years with TriMet.

Devine will temporarily lead TriMet while the Board finalizes its decision on a permanent GM. TriMet and the Board have conducted community outreach since November during the GM search. The Board named TriMet’s COO Doug Kelsey as the finalist for the position at its Jan. 24 meeting. Board members and Kelsey have been meeting with community stakeholders to discuss TriMet’s long- and short-term goals. The Board expects to make a decision at its Feb. 28 meeting on whether to offer Kelsey the GM position or continue the search.

Interim GM Devine joined TriMet in March 2008 as sr. deputy general counsel and was named general counsel in March 2014. She oversees TriMet’s Legal Services Division and has served as advisor to the GM and board.
