METRO TAPS FORMER MARINE AS HEAD OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
The days of a two or three-person team managing the functions of an Information Technology department are a thing of the past. In today’s world, the modern, wide-ranging functions are more complex and demanding - and to deliver a reliable IT infrastructure, METRO has appointed Randy Frazier as vice president and chief information officer.
From handling the agency’s software and hardware equipment to implementing and troubleshooting METRO’s extensive security camera system and bus communication systems – there’s an ever-expanding network of responsibilities.
“With so many advancements in information technology, I want to make sure METRO’s systems are at the forefront of those advances to provide the most cost-effective and efficient ways to support the day-to-day business of the transit agency,” said Frazier.
Frazier, a veteran of Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 463, has been with METRO since 1999 when he started out as a staff attorney and later senior staff attorney in the law department. He took on the role of associate vice president of corporate development in 2008 and later became associate vice president of information technology in 2009. The former marine has been serving as METRO’s acting vice president of information technology since last year.
“Having had the opportunity to observe Randy at work in his acting capacity, I feel confident that he will continue in his new role to render the support service needed for us to do our job of providing safe, reliable, convenient and affordable transit service,” said George Greanias, METRO president & CEO.
