Sound Transit this week named agency veteran Eric Beckman as executive director of the Portfolio Services Office.

The role is key to guiding the Seattle transit agency's successful project delivery, Sound Transit officials said in a press release.

Beckman joined Sound Transit in November 2003 as a project manager supporting ST Express and Sounder services before he became a Sounder project director. He recently served as the deputy executive director in Sound Transit’s Department of Design, Engineering and Construction Management, overseeing the business and construction services division.

In his new role, Beckman will report to Sound Transit Deputy CEO Kimberly Farley.

"Eric brings the deep experience and attributes the agency needs in this important job," Farley said. "He brings a strong technical background and is committed to continuing to improve the way we do business. Eric's exceptional collaboration skills and emphasis on transparency will be particularly valuable to our work."
