Hugh Louch

Over my 15-year career, I have worked on many interesting transportation challenges. My work has focused on strategic planning, policy analysis, and research, with a specific emphasis on performance management. Making a strong connection between planning and implementation is a personal passion of mine. Walking and biking have always been my primary modes for commuting and recreation, and I’ve spent countless vacations backpacking.
