Ann Schneider Gets Top Illinois Department of Transportation Job – Temporarily


(Chicago, IL) — July 1, 2011. Governor Pat Quinn announced today the appointment of Ann Schneider as acting Secretary of the Illinois Department of Transportation.

“As we head into this busy construction season, the department of Transportation needs an energetic and capable leader, and Ann L. Schneider has shown herself time and again to be just that,” said Quinn.

Schneider’s appointment follows the retirement of Gary Hannig, who served as Illinois’ Transportation Secretary since 2009 and oversaw the busiest construction season in state history. Schneider currently serves as the agency’s Chief of Operations.

“Gary Hannig’s experience and deep knowledge of state government proved invaluable to my administration. Our state is a better place thanks to his leadership,” Quinn said.

Schneider, a resident of Petersburg, has served as IDOT’s Chief of Operations since 2010, responsible for managing and overseeing the department’s six offices and four divisions. Previously, she served five years as Director and Chief Financial Officer for IDOT’s Office of Finance and Administration.

Hannig, of Litchfield, was appointed Transportation Secretary by Quinn after serving in the Illinois House of Representatives since 1979.

  1. Did she vote for the tax increase too?

  2. Jim,

    I’ll assume that’s “snark”.
