New Transportation Services Director Appointed For Frederick County

He has been serving as Acting Director

 

 

Frederick, Md (KM) The Frederick County Council on Tuesday appointed Roman Steichen as the county’s Transportation Services Director. He had been acting director since February when Director Nancy Norris retired.

He came to Frederick County in 2018 as Deputy Director of TransIT, where he oversaw contract management, grant and budget administration, and professional staff.

Steichen also served as the chief safety officer, who made sure the division met all federal safety standards.

“Roman has done an amazing job as acting director,” says Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner, in a statement. “From hosting US Congressmen on his first day, to quickly adjusting¬† major changes in transit services during the health pandemic, he has shown real leadership. I am confident he will continue to bring new ideas to keep the buses running.”

Prior to joining Frederick County Government, Steichen was transportation manager for Johns Hopkins University.
