(October 10, 2018)
- Following an intensive, multi-month search, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials selected Jim Tymon to become its seventh executive director during the association’s annual meeting in Atlanta Sept. 20-24.
Tymon, who is currently AASHTO’s chief operating officer and director of policy and management, joined the association in 2013. He will assume his new role when the current executive director, Frederick “Bud” Wright, retires Dec. 31.
Tymon previously served as staff director of the Highways and Transit Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and as senior advisor to the committee’s outgoing chairman, Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Penn., who is retiring from Congress.
