Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti, commissioner of the state Department of Transportation, has been elected second vice president of the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association, the group announced.

Gutierrez-Scaccetti, who serves in Gov. Phil Murphy’s administration, was chosen during the global association of toll facility owners and operators’ annual meeting and exhibition in September, the group said in a news release.

“Diane will bring her bold leadership and vision to our association and industry,” Patrick D. Jones, IBTTA’s executive director and CEO, said in a prepared statement. “In New Jersey and around the world, tolling is providing greater mobility options for millions of customers. Diane’s extensive work in transportation comes at a critical time when communities and nations worldwide are looking at new ways to fund and finance vital transportation infrastructure.”
