New Managing Director Named at NTSB

Sharon Bryson had served as deputy managing director for about a year; as managing director, she is responsible for assisting the NTSB chair with all aspects of the day-to-day operations of the agency.

Robert Sumwalt, the National Transportation Safety Board's chairman, announced Feb. 28 that Sharon Bryson is the agency's new managing director and Paul Sledzik has been named deputy managing director.

Bryson had served as deputy managing director for about a year; as managing director, she is responsible for assisting the NTSB chair with all aspects of the day-to-day operations of the agency. Bryson previously was director of the Office of Safety Recommendations and Communications. She joined NTSB in November 1997 as a victim assistance specialist, later becoming chief of the Office of Transportation Disaster Assistance.

In Sledzik's new position, he supports the managing director in the daily operations of the agency and also serves as NTSB’s chief human capital officer. Sledzik previously headed NTSB's Office of Safety Recommendations and Communications from 2016-2018, and from 2010 to 2016, he led the NTSB Transportation Disaster Assistance Division, which coordinates family assistance with local, state, federal, and non-governmental agencies and transportation operators.

The agency's news release said Dolline Hatchett recently joined NTSB as director of the Office of Safety Recommendations and Communications.

"Sharon, Paul, and Dolline bring a wealth of knowledge to this agency, its mission, and the traveling public," said Sumwalt. "I am extremely grateful to them for their willingness to serve in these leadership roles, and I am excited for our path ahead."
