AUSTIN – Texas Transportation Commission Chairman Ted Houghton commented today on the departure of Texas Department of Transportation Executive Director Phil Wilson:
“Phil has directed a number of significant changes and improvements in operations at TxDOT during his two years as executive director. His leadership, strategic skills, business acumen and ability to assemble a talented team helped the agency increase efficiencies while continuing to provide safe modes of transportation for the citizens of Texas. We are sorry to see him leave, but wish him success in his next challenge.”
Wilson became executive director of TxDOT in October 2011, coming from Luminant, where he served as senior vice president of public affairs and as a corporate officer. Wilson will assist in the transition of leadership at TxDOT and is expected to start at LCRA Feb. 1, 2014.
