TxDOT chief executive Amadeo Saenz to resign2:57 PM Wed, Jan 26, 2011 | Dallas Morning News
Texas Department of Transportation executive director Amadeo Saenz resigned today, just weeks after a hand-picked panel of advisors urged his bosses to make leadership changes at the highest levels.
He will remain in his spot, however, until Aug. 31.
Saenz, who has been chief executive of the 12,000-employee agency since 2007, is the first hispanic to lead the department, which is famous for its tradition of hiring from within. Saenz joined the department 33 years ago in Pharr District.
"Throughout the course of his career, Amadeo has earned a reputation
as a leader and coalition builder, and earned the respect and trust of
his peers across the country, our partners here in Texas, and most
importantly, his employees.
