The former head of Caltrans ITS department, Fedrico Hormozi has joined traffic control equipment maker McCain to spearhead the company’s expanding ITS Solutions Group.

The SWARCO-owned company says as Director of ITS Solutions, Hormozi will manage a team “committed to providing a consistently high level of service to current and future McCain customers”.

In a statement it says, “From equipment deployment, hardware and software systems integration, troubleshooting and solution generation, all the way to purchase and education, Hormozi and his team will respond to customer needs and issues as well as grow and deepen customer relationships. The ITS Solutions team will also provide input on new product design, development, and functionality.”

During his two-decade career at California’s Department of Transportation, Hormozi served in several upper management roles including chief of the ITS Engineering and Support Branch. As a registered electrical engineer, he was part of a group responsible for the development and instruction of the Caltrans ITS Academy which educated approximately 600 Caltrans electrical engineers across the state. With his engineering and business background, Hormozi has the breadth of experience and understanding to enhance McCain’s customer experience.

“I come to this position after spending the majority of my career as an end user, giving me a unique understanding of what public agencies really need,” he said. “In my many years working with countless vendors, I truly believe that McCain produces the best cabinets, controllers, and signals the industry has to offer. I am proud to spearhead McCain’s ITS Solutions Group and help provide a seamless, solution-driven experience for our customers.”

Greg McKhann, McCain’s chief operating officer, said Hormozi’s hiring continues the company’s commitment to ITS and to helping define the future of transportation, “We are thrilled to have someone as dynamic and skilled as Fedrico on our team. We take our obligation to customer satisfaction and solution development very seriously and he shares those values at his core.”
