Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has selected Kevin Thibault as secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). Thibault is the former southeast regional senior vice president of TranSystems Corp.

Thibault has extensive experience in the private and public sectors, including 16 years at FDOT.

"One of the most pressing issues facing our state is the need to relieve congestion and continue modernizing our transportation system," DeSantis said in a press release. "As he returns to FDOT, I know Secretary Thibault will work hard to achieve the mission of providing a safe transportation system that ensures the mobility of people and goods, enhances economic prosperity and preserves the quality of Florida’s beautiful environment."

At TranSystems, Thibault was responsible for the management of $40 million in revenue and nearly 200 employees. He also served as a SVP at Parsons Corp.
