Frederick Announces New TransIT Director

Frederick County announced the promotion and appointment of Roman Steichen as the Transportation Services Division Director.

Unanimously confirmed by the Frederick County Council, Steichen had been serving as Acting Director since February when former Director Nancy Norris retired. Steichen came to Frederick County TransIT in 2018 as Deputy Director. In that role, he oversaw contract management, grant and budget administration, and professional staff. He also served as the chief safety officer, ensuring the division met all federal safety standards.

From the press release:

“Roman has done an amazing job as acting director,” County Executive Jan Gardner said. “From hosting U.S. Congressmen on his first day, to quickly adjusting to major changes in transit service 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.
