Federal Highway Administrator Kenneth R. Wykle today announced the appointment of Gail R. Shibley as the agency’s director of communications.

"Gail’s diverse background in government and the private sector, coupled with her experience in public outreach and communications, is a strong combination that will be valuable as the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) helps to continue the U.S. transportation system as the best in the world," Wykle said.

Before her appointment, Shibley from 1991-97 was a state representative in the Oregon legislature, where she was assistant Democratic leader and served on the transportation committee. From 1990-96, Shibley was director of communications for the Bureau of Traffic Management in the city of Portland. From 1987-90, she was an account executive with Ryan Communications, an advertising and public relations firm in Portland.

Shibley also spent six years as an aide to former U.S. Rep. Jim Weaver (Ore.), serving as office director in his Oregon district office and as a legislative assistant on Capitol Hill. In addition, she has been active in a number of civic, safety and human rights organizations.

Shibley is from Oregon and has a bachelor’s degree in international relations from the University of Oregon. She lives in Washington, D.C.

The FHWA is an agency of the U.S. Department of Transportation with headquarters in Washington, D.C. It has 3,500 employees, a field office in every state, and an annual budget of more than $21 billion.
