"I am excited to bring my nearly three decades of transportation experience to iDEKOgov," said Lori Ardito. "I hold the partners of iDEKOgov in the highest regard, having worked with them in their prior roles within New York City government. Together, we will help the firm's clients address issues critical to moving their businesses forward, whether it be navigating intricate government processes, addressing thorny community relations issues, or managing crises that seem insurmountable. This team has the depth of experience needed to get the job done, and I am proud to join them."
"Lori is the person you want by your side when execution matters," said Janette Sadik-Khan, former commissioner of New York City's Department of Transportation. "As commissioner of the continent's largest transportation department for six years, I was grateful to have Lori as First Deputy to implement some of the most ambitious changes to city streets in a century, and to be there during the direst emergencies or putting on the city's largest and most iconic events. Lori earned the admiration of everyone within the department itself--from road workers to ferry crew to engineers--and she commanded the respect of a generation of city leadership. New Yorkers were lucky to have her dedication, and any organization would be lucky to get her."
