Hall Named to FRA Leadership

Heath Hall, former president of Strategic Marketing Group, a public relations firm, was sworn in as FRA deputy administrator by DOT Secretary Elaine L. Chao on June 23. He is also serving as acting administrator; the deputy position does not require Senate approval.

Hall, formerly of Mississippi, was also vice president of external affairs and marketing at the Mississippi Technology Alliance. During this time, he founded and served as publisher of a magazine focused on technology and innovation in Mississippi.

In addition, he was senior vice president of external affairs at the Mississippi Economic Council, the State Chamber of Commerce. In 1998, Hall ran for Congress from Mississippi’s fourth congressional district.

He also served former Mississippi Gov. Kirk Fordice as director of public affairs and deputy press secretary.

Hall previously worked at FRA as an intern, moved into the office of the DOT deputy secretary and was an intern in the White House Office of Political Affairs during the George H.W. Bush administration. He was also a staff assistant to the director of the Peace Corps.

FRA has a $1.8 billion budget, more than 900 employees and eight regional offices.
