Three-star general selected as new TxDOT leader

Joe Weber, Texas A&M University’s vice president of student affairs and a retired three-star United States Marine Corps general, will be the new executive director of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
Weber, 63, was selected April 4 during a special meeting of the Texas Transportation Commission.


He succeeds Phil Wilson, who in January became general manager of the Lower Colorado River Authority. Weber will take over on or about April 23 and will be the department’s 20th executive director.
“As TxDOT continues its transformation in becoming a best-in-class agency, Gen. Weber is the right fit for this department,” said Texas Transportation Commissioner Jeff Moseley, who led the search efforts on behalf of the commission. “The general’s proven track record and collaborative nature will help the department work even more closely with the Legislature and other key transportation stakeholders.”


Weber served the Marine Corps for 36 years, including assignments throughout the United States and overseas leading major efforts, including tours in Iraq and Japan. His primary duties focused on training, education and combat readiness for military personnel.
Weber graduated in 1972 from Texas A&M along with Gov. Rick Perry, who earlier endorsed his life-long friend for TxDOT’s top post. Weber earned a master’s degree from the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas.
