C-TRAN announced that its Board of Directors unanimously selected Leann M. Caver as C-TRAN’s new CEO, effective March 1, 2024.

Caver will take over for outgoing CEO Shawn M. Donaghy, who was recently appointed CEO of the North County Transit District in San Diego County, Calif.

Caver will become the sixth CEO in C-TRAN’s 43-year history. She currently serves as C-TRAN’s Deputy CEO.

“C-TRAN is an incredible agency with an amazing team, and I’m excited for the opportunity to serve Southwest Washington in this new role,” Caver said. “We have accomplished a lot together already, and I know there’s an even brighter future ahead. I’m grateful to the C-TRAN board and staff for their support.”

Leann M. Caver's Experience

Caver brings 20 years of experience in public transportation, starting as a coach operator. She spent 17 years at TriMet in various roles before joining C-TRAN’s Operations team in 2021.

While at C-TRAN, Caver has also served as Manager of Operations, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion/Organizational Development, COO, and now Deputy CEO. She is a graduate of Warner Pacific University in Portland, Ore.

“C-TRAN is already an award-winning agency, and I’m confident that Leann is the right person to continue that momentum and build on the success that we’ve achieved,” said C-TRAN board chair Anne McEnerny-Ogle. “We’re very fortunate to have someone of Leann’s caliber ready to step in.”

Donaghy leaves C-TRAN after a nearly seven-year tenure as CEO.
