MARTA's Parker Named to White House Council

President Barack Obama has announced his intent to appoint Keith T. Parker, general manager/chief executive officer, Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, to the National Infrastructure Advisory Council (NIAC).

The council provides the president, through the secretary of homeland security, with advice on the security of critical infrastructure sectors and their information systems. The council, which meets quarterly, comprises a maximum of 30 members, appointed by the president from private industry, academia and state and local government.

“I am deeply humbled to have been asked to serve our country in this capacity,” said Parker, also a member of the APTA Executive Committee. “I look forward to working with the other members of the National Infrastructure Advisory Council and the secretary of homeland security.”

In a prepared statement, Obama said, “I am honored that these talented individuals have decided to serve our country. They bring their years of experience and expertise to this administration and I look forward to working with them.”

Parker joins Beverly A. Scott, chief executive officer, Beverly Scott Associates LLC, on the NIAC. Obama appointed Scott, a past APTA chair, to the council in 2011 and she became its vice chair the following year.
