 MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Former U.S. Secretary of Transportation Neil Goldschmidt has been named to the board of directors of BDM International, Inc. (BDM), it was announced by Philip A. Odeen, BDM president and CEO. "Throughout his life, Neil Goldschmidt has been an advocate and agent of positive change in government and industry.

He led "The Oregon Comeback," an economic revival that reinvigorated Oregon's economy, improved the business climate through a series of regulatory reforms, and initiated an investment strategy to repair the state's deteriorating infrastructure. He also produced the state's first long-range economic development strategy.

He has also continued to address children's issues through the Oregon Children's Foundation and its early literacy program. He serves on the Trilateral Commission, which helps foster closer cooperation to resolve problems common to Western Europe, Japan, and North America; the Commission to Promote Investment in America's Infrastructure; and as chairman of the Cascade Center for International Business and Policy.
 Prior to his gubernatorial career, Goldschmidt had been the president of NIKE Canada from 1986 to 1987 and international vice president of NIKE, Inc., from 1981 to 1985. Before NIKE, he served as secretary of transportation for President Carter. At the time of this appointment, he had already served almost seven years as the mayor of Portland, which became a national model for mass transit during his tenure.
 Goldschmidt is a graduate of the University of Oregon and earned a law degree from the University of California's Boalt Law School.
 Frank C. Carlucci, former secretary of defense and chairman of The Carlyle Group, L.P., serves as chairman of the BDM board. With the naming of Goldschmidt to the board, it now includes seven outside directors plus three from Carlyle and three from BDM.
