Louisiana Governor Appoints Fisher-Cormier as DOTD Commissioner, Office of Multimodal Commerce

BATON ROUGE, LA — The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that Gov. Jeff Landry has appointed Julia Fisher-Cormier as Commissioner of the Office of Multimodal Commerce (OMC). Formed in 2016, the office is within DOTD and is tasked with improving Louisiana’s focus on multimodal transportation. Fisher-Cormier replaces Renee Lapeyrolerie, who served as OMC Commissioner since March of 2020.

“Growing up on the Mississippi River, I have seen firsthand the economic development and generational wealth that was created for Louisiana families when investments were made in transportation and infrastructure,” Fisher-Cormier said. “I am honored to have been selected by Governor Landry to continue serving this state and lead a team that will focus on enhancing and maximizing our multimodal transportation to effectively and efficiently move cargo.”

Fisher-Cormier served as Chief Commercial Officer for the Port of South Louisiana since January 2020. She also spent 12 years as a Property and Casualty Insurance Agent with Brown & Brown Insurance in New Orleans and Riverlands Insurance Services Inc. in Luling.

Since 2012, Fisher-Cormier has served as the District 7 Councilwoman for the St. Charles Parish Council. She has served twice as the council’s Chair and Vice Chair and has also chaired the Hurricane Protection Projects Commission.

Fisher-Cormier has been a Police Jury Association of Louisiana member since 2012 and has served on the association’s executive board since 2016. She has also been a National Association of County Officials member since 2012.
