Caterpillar has hired former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood to serve as a consultant, the company announced Thursday.

Caterpillar says LaHood will “provide advice on policy related matters.”

“[LaHood] will assist Caterpillar in developing corporate strategies focused on identifying solutions to specific policy and communications challenges Caterpillar faces in the increasingly complex policy and business environment,” Caterpillar said in a statement.

LaHood served as U.S. Transportation Secretary for four years after a 14-year term as a congressman.

In addition to his new consulting post, LaHood also serves as co-chairman of Building America’s Future (BAF) and a senior advisor to infrastructure investment firm Meridiam, among other positions.
