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.
