Robin Hutcheson Nominated to FMCSA Administrator Post

On April 6, President Biden formally nominated Robin Hutcheson to become administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Hutchenson has served as acting administrator since Jan. 19, and previously served as deputy assistant secretary for safety policy for the U.S. Department of Transportation.

“We congratulate Deputy Administrator Hutcheson on her nomination to head FMCSA, and we support her swift confirmation by the Senate,” American Trucking Associations President Chris Spear said in a statement. “She has deep experience in transportation administration, having previously served as director of public works for the City of Minneapolis and transportation director for Salt Lake City, which makes her well qualified and prepared for this vital role. Her commitment to working with our industry to improve safety is unwavering.”

Prior to joining FMCSA, at DOT Hutcheson led the development of the National Roadway Safety Strategy and was instrumental in the development of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, especially the new Safe Streets and Roads for All program.

As director of public works for Minneapolis, she oversaw a team of 1,100 people across nine divisions including drinking water, surface waters and sewers, solid waste and recycling, fleet management and all transportation functions.

Hutcheson’s nomination will go before the U.S. Senate for confirmation.
