Three New Leaders Nominated for FEMA

DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff announced new incoming leaders at FEMA last week. Dennis R. Schrader has been nominated to be deputy administrator for National Preparedness, Robert D. Jamison will be deputy under secretary for the National Protection and Programs Directorate, and Christopher T. Geldart will be director of the Office of National Capitol Region Coordination in FEMA, where he will oversee domestic preparedness initiatives for state, local, and regional authorities in Washington, D.C.

Schrader was Maryland's first Homeland Security Advisor, a county council member for Howard County, Md., a vice president for the University of Maryland Medical System Corp., and spent 26 years in the U.S. Navy. Jamison has been deputy assistant secretary for the Transportation Security Administration inside DHS. "I have come to rely upon Robert's sound counsel and expertise in his role as TSA's chief operating officer. He is a proven leader and has my utmost respect for his tireless work and innovative management skills. As a member of the department's leadership team, Robert has done outstanding work to strengthen TSA's security capabilities," Chertoff said.

Geldart was the chief of Maryland's Homeland Security Program Executive Office. He headed efforts to improve the state's hazards prevention, protection, response, and recovery capabilities. "His work in this arena, including an important role to protect Maryland's critical infrastructure, will allow him to make an immediate impact at DHS and hit the ground running," Chertoff said.
