joins InfraStrategies as Principal
To say that the evolution of the US P3 market has been something of a slow burner over the past two decades would be an understatement.

At the forefront of this growth has been Michael Schneider, who has been around to witness almost every bump and turn along this slow journey to success.
InfraStrategies LLC is pleased to announce that Carolyn Flowers, former Acting Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration under President Obama, has become a partner and managing principal of the firm, joining current principals Jeff Boothe, Sharon Greene, Jeff Morales and Mike Schneider.
