TriMet appoints Brookshire as head of finance
The Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet) has named Dee Brookshire executive director of finance and administration.
Brookshire, who will start Aug. 18, comes to TriMet from the Sacramento Regional Transit District, where she served as chief financial officer for the past seven years.
She will oversee the agency's financial services, procurement contracts, financial analysis and grants. Brookshire has more than 20 years of experience in public agency and private sector finance, including substantial debt restructuring and multiple bond issuances for public agencies. She has aided in successful labor negotiations for agencies with multiple bargaining units, TrIMet officials said in a press release.
Current Interim CFO Dave Auxier will stay on the job through August, they added.
