Morristown, N.J. (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
The Louis Berger Group (Louis Berger) today announced the appointment of George Campbell to the position of vice president in the transportation engineering business unit. In this role, he will support design-build and public-private partnership (P3) project development nationally and transportation business development within the Northeastern United States.
Campbell has an extensive leadership background in both the private and public sectors. He has led two state departments of transportation as the transportation commissioner in New Hampshire and Maine. In New Hampshire, he oversaw a number of critical infrastructure projects and helped lead the region in highway innovation with the introduction of high-speed tolling. He also was elected to the city council and served as mayor of Portland, Maine.
“George is a strong, forward thinking and strategic transportation leader,” said Christopher Clement, current commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Transportation. “It was my privilege to be part of his team and learn from his extensive knowledge of the transportation industry.”
In private industry, Campbell has represented clients such as L.L. Bean, Nestle and General Dynamics to develop significant expansion projects ranging from $100 million to $500 million in value. Campbell has been president of four companies, including an intermodal transportation business and a northern New England commercial real estate firm.
“Our clients are increasingly in need of new, creative financing mechanisms to fund projects,” said Connie Crawford, senior vice president for Louis Berger’s transportation business unit. “George has a proven record of creating large public-private partnerships and will serve as a strong complement to our existing design-build and P3 practice.”
Campbell holds a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Maine. He will be based in both the Needham, Mass., and Portland, Maine, offices.
