The MARTA Board of Directors Thursday picked a 22-year agency veteran to be interim general manager while it searches for a permanent replacement for CEO Keith Parker.
The board named General Counsel Elizabeth O’Neill to be Parker’s temporary replacement. Parker announced this week he’s leaving MARTA after five years to become president and CEO of Goodwill of North Georgia.
The MARTA board also agreed to seek an executive search firm to find Parker’s permanent replacement. They expect to pick a firm in October.
MARTA plans to conduct a national search that could take six to nine months.
