Austin, TX, May 2024 – Chickenango Marketing Solutions is excited to announce the appointment of Dione Albert as our new Director of Texas Operations. Dione joins us with over three decades of experience at the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), where she developed extensive expertise in transportation program and project delivery. Her commitment to understanding and serving the unique needs of our clients, providing effective solutions, and fostering strong relationships aligns perfectly with our mission to deliver exceptional client service. 


During her distinguished career at TxDOT, Dione held several key positions that honed her skills in managing transportation project development. As a Letting Funding Manager and Transportation Planner, she oversaw TxDOT’s letting schedule, coordinated transportation fund programming in the Unified Transportation Program (UTP), and led stakeholder engagement for public involvement. Additionally, she collaborated with FWHA and FEMA to facilitate training for local governments.  Her collaboration on projects included integration into the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and prioritization in the Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan (SLRTP).

In her role as Director of Administration for TxDOT’s Travel and Information (TRV) Division, Dione partnered with the Texas Governor’s Office to implement tourism initiatives and anti-litter campaigns.  


Most recently, as the Controls Center Manager, Dione evaluated the effectiveness of division processes, services, and staff resources. Her oversight included ensuring compliance with federal and state regulations, reflecting her dedication to continuous improvement and excellence. 


Dione’s achievements, such as the Innovative Transportation Solutions Award and the WOW! Award from the Women at TxDOT Employee Resource Group, highlight her leadership and commitment to innovation.
