Anne-Marie Trevelyan named new UK transport chief

LONDON — New U.K. Prime Minister Liz Truss named Anne-Marie Trevelyan her new transport secretary.

The former trade secretary backed a rival candidate, Tom Tugendhat, in the Conservative leadership campaign, but switched to Truss when he got knocked out.

During her stint in the trade department, Trevelyan got new free-trade deals with Australia and New Zealand over the line, as well as a digital agreement with Singapore.

She also ran the international development department until it was folded into the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
