AUSTIN (KXAN) — CapMetro will soon have new leadership, with a planned announcement of its next president and CEO early next week.
On Monday, CapMetro’s board of directors will consider approval of a resolution offering the position to the final candidate. Meeting agenda notes show Dottie Watkins, CapMetro’s current interim president and CEO, will be offered the role in a full-time capacity.
Watkins served as CapMetro’s interim president and CEO since May. She held a range of positions within the transit authority, most recently as deputy chief executive officer prior to her interim appointment. She started with CapMetro in 1994 as a bus driver.
Watkins took over in an interim capacity after former CapMetro President and CEO Randy Clarke announced his departure last May. He took over as head of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority in Washington, D.C. this past summer.
