Two federal agencies that oversee major construction programs have new administrators, following Senate approval of their nominations. Both agency chiefs, confirmed on Aug. 6, are familiar faces at their agencies.

Gregory Nadeau, sworn in as the Federal Highway Administration’s new leader on Aug. 11, had been its deputy administrator since 2009. After FHWA’s previous chief, Victor Mendez, became the Dept. of Transportation’s deputy secretary in July 2014, Nadeau was named FHWA acting administrator, holding the post until last February.

The General Services Administration’s new head, Denise Turner Roth, had been its No. 2 official since March 2014. GSA’s Public Buildings Service is responsible for designing,  constructing and renovating federal courthouses and other facilities.

Nadeau worked for the Maine Dept. of Transportation from 2002 to 2009, including a five-year stint as deputy commissioner for policy, planning and communications.

Roth, sworn in to GSA’s top post on Aug. 7, had been its acting administrator since last February. Roth had been city manager of Greensboro, N.C., from 2011 to 2014.
