Cooper, the firmwide managing partner of Jackson Walker L.L.P., is the first new Capital Metro board chair since 2010. He is replacing Mike Martinez.

“We are extremely proud of Wade Cooper’s appointment as the chair of the board of directors of Capital Metro,” says Jim Pledger, a partner with Jackson Walker and Chair of Movability Austin’s board. “Wade has a long history of community service and leadership in Austin. I could not think of any person better suited to serve in this important and challenging role.”
