Friday, Nov. 13 – Anne Ferro, former president of the Maryland Motor Truck Association, was officially sworn in today as the new administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

At the helm, Ferro will focus on reducing crashes, injuries and fatalities involving commercial vehicles.

She was confirmed to the post by the Senate earlier this month after being nominated in June by President Barack Obama.

In addition to working in the trucking industry, Ferro also spent six years as Maryland’s motor vehicle administrator.
