Former Transportation Secretary Mineta joins intermodal firm's advisory board


Norman Mineta is back in the transportation game. The former U.S. transportation secretary has joined the advisory board of Carolinks, a Charleston, S.C., intermodal company that plans to create a $250 million barge and rail operation to transport containers from the Port of Charleston to a new inland port beginning next year.

After resigning as transportation secretary on July 7, ending his more than five-year stint in the cabinet post, Mineta joined public relations firm Hill & Knowlton as vice chairman. He previously spent 20 years in the U.S. House of Representatives representing California's Silicon Valley, chaired the National Civil Aviation Review Commission, served as U.S. Secretary of Commerce under former President Bill Clinton and was vice president of Lockheed Martin Corp.
