Gov. J. B. Pritzker (D) has named Omer Osman (seen above) to serve as secretary of the Illinois Department of Transportation, pending confirmation by the state legislature.

Osman, according to a Feb. 22 statement from the Governor’s Office, most recently served as deputy secretary for the office of project implementation for the agency – responsible for guiding day-to-day program delivery and developing both short- and long-term technical policies and procedures.

Osman, who also served as the director of highways, deputy director of Region 5 and project implementation and operations engineer during his nearly three-decade career with the Illinois DOT, holds a Master of Science in civil engineering from Bradley University and a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Southern University.
