The Missouri Department of Transportation today named Scott Marion director of its Motor Carrier Services division.
Marion proved his abilities as the assistant director of MCS since 2011. He joined MoDOT in 2008 after a successful career with Wal-Mart, ultimately serving as store director in Jefferson City.
"Scott is very focused on customer service. He understands the importance of the motor carrier industry to Missouri's economy and to the lives of all Missourians because motor carriers deliver so many of the goods that citizens depend on every day," said MoDOT Chief Financial Officer, Roberta Broeker. "I know Scott will do a great job serving the industry and the taxpayers of Missouri.
MoDOT Motor Carrier Services streamlines the process for truckers to begin - and remain - in business in Missouri. It performs safety inspections and promotes regulation compliance; issues and renews commercial vehicle registration and license plates; fuel tax licenses; oversize overweight load permits and more in a one-stop shop.
"I'm very proud of the Motor Carrier Services team and thrilled to serve as their leader," said Marion. "I look forward to working with our customers and stakeholders with the same level of care and attention as always."
Jan Skouby will retire after nearly 10 years as director of MCS on October 31. Marion assumes his new position effective November 1, 2013.
