Hillyard has more than 20 years of public sector executive experience leading the financial, information technology, business and operations departments of organizations of up to 10,000 employees, according to a Valley Metro press release.

Prior to joining Valley Metro, Hillyard served as deputy director for operations at the Arizona Department of Economic Security.

“As a regular user of the rail and a resident of downtown, I know how important our work is to the Arizonans we serve and to the development of our community. As a result, I’m very excited to join such a great team and have the opportunity to make a difference," Hillyard said.
