Peter Rogoff has served as Chief Executive Officer at Sound Transit, the regional transit provider in the Central Puget Sound region, since January 2016. In his first year at Sound Transit, Rogoff led the effort to usher through a $54 billion system expansion initiative. In November 2016, voters in Sound Transit’s three-county district passed the measure, mandating Sound Transit to build a 116-mile regional rapid transit network by 2041, the largest transit expansion program in North America. As a 30-year transportation professional, Rogoff was appointed by President Barack H. Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate twice, first as Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration from 2009-2014, and then from 2014-2016, as the Under Secretary of Transportation for Policy at the U.S. Department of Transportation. Prior to serving in these distinguished positions, Rogoff spent 22 years on the staff of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, including 14 years as Democratic Staff Director on the Transportation Subcommittee.
