The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) has named Elizabeth O'Neill interim general manager and chief executive officer.

A 22-year MARTA veteran, O'Neill currently serves as the agency's chief legal counsel. She will succeed Keith Parker, who last week announced he will resign to accept a position as president and CEO of Goodwill of North Georgia.

"Supported by Parker and newly named deputy general manager Arthur Troup, O’Neill will help ensure a seamless transition and carry MARTA forward as we launch a national search for a permanent chief executive," said MARTA Chair Robbie Ashe in a press release.

O'Neill started her career at MARTA as a senior associate counsel in 1995 and was promoted to chief of litigation in 1999. She was named chief counsel and assistant general manager in 2006.

In 2013, O'Neill became chief legal counsel. She's also served as an adviser to MARTA's senior leaders and its board.
