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.

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.
