Interim FMCSA Chief Tapped for Position

Meera Joshi is currently serving as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s deputy and acting administrator, a position she’s held since January, and one President Biden intends to make permanent with a nomination.

The FMCSA has been operating under acting administrators since Administrator Ray Martinez stepped down in October 2019.

Joshi is an attorney with over 16 years of experience leading government oversight agencies. Previously, she served as chair and chief executive officer of the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission. While there, she led Vision Zero campaigns to keep high risk drivers and unsafe vehicles off the road. 

American Trucking Associations' President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Spear expressed support for the nomination. “Deputy Administrator Joshi has been communicating well with trucking industry stakeholders, and our economic recovery and growth will depend on how challenges facing the industry are addressed. These issues – including training, workforce development, technology and strengthening interstate commerce – will need strong leadership by FMCSA," Spear said.
