Division Staff Changes

Posted March 15, 2017
Ivan Presnyy has accepted a position with the Oregon Department of Education, Early Childhood Division.  His last day with ODOT Rail and Public Transit Division will be April 7, 2017. Effective April 10th, Maile Boals will take on lead worker responsibilities for the Operations team. 
Ivan’s contributions to our Division have been invaluable, from shepherding OPTIS through to the system of record it is today, streamlining our grant agreement and payment processes, leading the Operations team through multiple changes and continually challenging the status quo and searching for creative solutions.  We will miss him, and wish him the very best of luck.
