Lynx CEO Resigns
Public transportation in Central Florida has a new face. Lynx CEO Edward Johnson has resigned.
Johnson resigned amid reports about concerns over staff morale, a strained budget and pressure on the bus service to better meet Central Florida’s public transportation needs. The Lynx board of directors accepted his resignation during Thursday’s board meeting.
In a letter to board members, Johnson says a new opportunity has been presented to him. He does not specify what that opportunity is.
Edwards became CEO in 2016. He’ll receive a severance pay of three months.
Lynx has named Orange County’s Assistant county administrator Jim Harrison as interim CEO.
Lynx declined to comment on Edward’s resignation.
