Louis Berger has appointed former District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT) Director Leif Dormsjo as Senior Vice President for Infrastructure Asset Management. He is based in the company’s Washington, D.C. office.

Dormsjo will oversee the management and growth of the company’s Infrastructure Asset Management practice, which operates and maintains a range of public and private transportation facilities and infrastructure assets for clients in the U.S. He also will serve on the company’s global public-private partnership (P3) council.

Dormsjo brings nearly 20 years of experience in the transportation industry, managing large-scale infrastructure programs and operations. During the course of his career, he has worked closely with public sector leaders, government officials, contractors, concessionaires and private financiers to find P3 solutions to overcome public funding challenges. At DDOT, Dormsjo worked on a wide range of services, including infrastructure delivery, local transit service, highway asset management, emergency response, bicycle and pedestrian programs and parking operations. He helped launch the D.C. Streetcar project.

Dormsjo previously served in a range of leadership positions, including deputy secretary for the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), where he played a key role in advancing the Purple Line transit project. He also served as Chief of Staff for the Baltimore Department of Transportation and as operations analyst for the Baltimore mayor’s Office.

Dormsjo earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Wesleyan University and a master’s degree in public policy in transportation, housing and urban development from Harvard University.

“As a public sector champion for public-private partnerships during his tenure at DDOT and MDOT, Leif demonstrated an ability to bring together public and private interests to solve community challenges from public safety to urban mobility,” said CEO Jim Stamatis. “His unique perspective, experience and understanding of both the public sector and private sector needs are a valuable addition to both our infrastructure asset management practice and our global P3 team.”
