TCDD is pleased to announce the selection of Rey Valldejuli as director of budget and finance. In his role at TCDD, Rey oversees daily accounting and budget projections.

Rey was previously the deputy chief of staff of finance for the Louisiana Department of Education. There, he supervised allocations for a $9 billion state education funding formula.

Before entering state government, Rey served in the U.S. Army for 11 years as an enlisted intelligence analyst and a field artillery officer.
