Damon A. Hill

Damon Hill currently serves as the Deputy Director for the Office of Governmental, International and Public Affairs in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). As a lead professional for congressional and public affairs, Damon plays a critical role in developing the agency’s communication strategies.  When he’s not helping the agency respond to or manage crisis situations, Damon focuses on building and maintaining strong media, congressional, and stakeholder relationships while conducting outreach to promote PHMSA’s safety related priorities. 

Damon’s 30-year career as a public servant has included roles in both the Legislative and Executive Branches.  Since beginning his tenure at DOT, Damon has held multiple positions, including serving as an assistant and advisor to members of PHMSA’s senior leadership team.  Damon’s skill in corporate communications also extended outside of government where he previously served as senior director for public affairs and policy at the Eno Transportation Foundation.  

Damon’s formal education includes a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Management from Bowie State University, American University’s Key Executive Leadership Program, and the Partnership for Public Service’s Excellence in Government Fellows Program.
