Larry Kimble

Occupation

Maryland Transit Administration's executive director of corporate services

In the news

He helped Maryland launch a first-of-its kind program to allow veterans to take training classes that the state government offers its employees, a service that officials say will help reduce high unemployment rates for those leaving the service.

Career highlights

He served in the Marines from 1973 to 1979 and went on to a career with the Defense Department and Veterans Administration, eventually becoming the chief of prosthetics for the Maryland Veterans Administration health system. He also worked for the state Department of Veterans Affairs before moving to the transportation department.

Personal

Kimble, 50, lives in Bel Air with his wife, Kathleen, and two children. A Pennsylvania native, he graduated from Millersville University in 1991.

Philosophy

"Military folks make great employees because they're team players. We're just hoping other employers will see that."
