Krier Elected Chair of SH 130 Board

Longtime transportation advocate to lead state’s first PPP

MUSTANG RIDGE, Tex. – Longtime transportation advocate Joe Krier of San Antonio is the new chairman of the board for the SH 130 Concession Company, LLC, the business operating the southern section of the State Highway 130 toll road in Central Texas.

“Joe is the perfect choice to lead the board and the company,” said Mary Peters, former US Secretary of Transportation and SH 130 Concession Company board member. “He understands the role the private sector can play in helping solve our transportation challenges, and he cares deeply about the future of Texas. This is great news.”

On February 5, Krier took the helm from Nicolas Rubio who remains a member of the board.

“I’m excited to take on this important role,” said Krier, a board member since April 2011. “SH 130 provides a critical congestion relief for the Austin-San Antonio Corridor. Our company operates the southern portion of a historic transportation project. We are combining the innovation of the private sector with the state’s longstanding commitment to mobility to provide a reliable and safe alternative to I-35 in Central Texas.”

Joe Krier is currently a Principal of Krier Consulting Group in San Antonio. He served as President and Chief Executive Officer of The Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce from 1987 to 2007. Krier chaired the Public Issues Management Group at Bracewell & Guiliani LLP and a partner with the law firm of Groce, Locke & Hebdon as a member of the firm’s corporate and commercial litigation section. In addition to the SH 130 Concession Company, he serves on the board of Humanities Texas. Krier previously served on Texas Department of Transportation and State Legislative Committees dealing with transportation. He was one of the founders of the San Antonio Mobility Coalition and Texans for Safe Reliable Transportation.
