Swaim-Staley to helm Maryland's DOT


Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley recently appointed Beverley Swaim-Staley state secretary of transportation. The first woman to head Maryland’s largest state agency, she will oversee more than 9,000 employees and a multi-billion-dollar budget. Swaim-Staley’s appointment is subject to confirmation by the state senate.
She most recently was acting secretary for the Maryland Department of Transportation and previously served as deputy secretary.

From 2003 to 2007, Swaim-Staley was director for Montgomery County’s Office of Budget and Management. Prior to that, she was chief financial officer for the state DOT and a budget and policy analyst for the Maryland General Assembly.
