TransLink has two new directors on its board.
Larry Beasley, a former director of planning for the City of Vancouver, and Tony Gugliotta, Vancouver Airport Authority’s vice-president of business development, have been appointed to three-year terms.
They were chosen by the mayors’ council, which appoints new directors from a short list of candidates vetted by a screening panel.
Lorraine Cunningham, chair of the Pacific Pilotage Authority, was reappointed to another term.
Beasley and Gugliotta replace outgoing directors John Dawson and Robin Chakrabarti.
The mayors’ council chair and vice-chair – currently Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson and Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner – also get seats on the TransLink board. A vote of mayors is expected by January on who will hold those roles for 2016.
Earlier this year, the province appointed two directors of its own – former VPD Chief Jim Chu and former Surrey city manager Murray Dinwoodie.
