Rossides Named TSA Deputy Administrator

The Transportation Security Administration has announced the selection of Gale Rossides as permanent deputy administrator. She had served in this role in an acting capacity since April 2007. Rossides was one of the federal executives selected to build TSA after its establishment in 2002 and has served in several executive leadership roles, including serving for a year as a senior advisor to the deputy secretary and under secretary for management for the Department of Homeland Security. Most recently she held the position of associate administrator for Business Transformation and Culture, where she established the TSA Senior Leadership Team. She was also instrumental in development of multiple operational and management initiatives, including an extensive career progression strategy, TSA's succession planning strategy, major policy issues on acquisitions and operations, and critical incident management.

"There is no one more committed to the people and mission of TSA than Gale Rossides," said Kip Hawley, TSA administrator. "Her leadership in developing innovative, employee-centric programs has been key to cultivating our 43,000 officers into a well-trained, highly-qualified, professional security workforce." Her selection will provide continuity and critical leadership, ensuring that TSA continues to mature as an agency while providing a consistently high level of security to our nation's transportation systems, the administration added.

Prior to joining TSA, Rossides was appointed the first assistant director (Training and Professional Development) for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms where she spearheaded numerous programs to re-engineer ATF law enforcement, regulatory, and management operations. She earned a bachelor's degree from Wheaton College (Norton, Mass.) and is a graduate of George Washington University's Masters in Public Administration for Federal Executives program.
