Wilson leaving TxDOT

 

Texas Department of Transportation Executive Director Phil Wilson announced Wednesday that he will leave the agency after only about two years in charge.  
“Phil has directed a number of significant changes and improvements in operations at TxDOT during his two years as executive director,” said Ted Houghton, Texas Transportation Commission chairman. “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.”


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.
Wilson is leaving to become the head of the Lower Colorado River Authority.
