e (#18, 2016) CEO, TRANSLINK

Driv­ing Force As soon as TransLink CEO Kevin Des­mon­dopened the Ev­er­green Line last De­cem­ber, he was al­ready look­ing ahead to Metro Van­cou­ver’s next bil­lion­dol­lar tran­sit project. A few months later, the fed­eral Lib­er­als an­nounced $2.2 bil­lion in fund­ing for re­gional tran­sit and by May, Des­mond was cel­e­brat­ing a veper­cent in­crease in rid­er­ship. Not bad for his rst full year on the job. Next up: the Mil­len­nium Line ex­ten­sion along Broad­way, which Des­mond hopes to see fully funded by the end of this year.
