Sue Keil Named Interim Director of Parks Bureau

June 9, 2011

Commissioner Fish announced this week that former Bureau of Transportation Director Sue Keil will serve as Interim Director of Portland Parks & Recreation until a new Director is selected.

"As it became clear that we would have a few months' gap between Zari's retirement and the starting date for the new director, I considered several factors in selecting an interim director. Recently retired PBOT Director Sue Keil came to mind as someone who could provide the kind of solid leadership I believe the bureau needs for these few months," Nick told Parks staff earlier this week.

We're honored to welcome Sue to our team.
