Anthony Foxx, who was approved in 100-0 U.S. Senate vote to serve as Department of Transportation Secretary throughout President Obama’s second term (2013-2017), has joined the 11-member Martin Marietta Board and its Finance Committee. A single term (2009-2013) as Charlotte, N.C. mayor propelled Foxx to national public and private sector roles.

He is presently chief policy officer of vehicles for hire service provider Lyft Inc., which he joined in 2018, and advisor to CEO Logan Green. He also advises AutoTech Ventures, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm that focuses on surface transportation technology, and Hyperloop One, a new transportation concept inspired by Tesla founder Elon Musk. Foxx holds undergraduate and law degrees from Davidson College and New York University.
