On May 1st, the PHMSA senior leadership team welcomed the addition of Mark Sanborn as our new Director of Governmental, International and Public Affairs. Mark has been around DOT the last few months as a transition team member and special assistant in the Office of the Secretary overseeing PHMSA, FTA and FMCSA issues. He is no stranger to DOT and from 2007 to 2009 was a counselor to the Assistant Secretary of Transportation Policy. From that time until now, Mark did some independent consulting, was a federal liaison in the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, and was the Director of Governmental Relations and Corporate Development for Concord Coach Lines. With this broad and impressive transportation background, he has become a critical element of our team and in advancing our safety mission. If you haven't already, please find the time to introduce yourself to Mark and welcome him aboard PHMSA.
