FMCSA names Marron director of governmental affairs

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced Brenna Marron as the agency’s new director of governmental affairs.

Marron received a B.S. in political science and sociology from the University of Utah.
