New Acting Deputy Director Appointed at ATF

Regina Lombardo has served as the associate deputy director and chief operating officer for the agency since March 2018, with responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the agency. Starting May 1, she will be the first woman to lead ATF in its history.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr has appointed Regina Lombardo to be acting deputy director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, effective May 1, 2019. Lombardo will replace Thomas Brandon, who will be retiring from federal service on April 30.

"Reggie Lombardo has helped run day-to-day operations at ATF for more than a year, and she has proven herself to be an outstanding leader," Barr said. "Like her predecessor, Tom Brandon, she started as a special agent and has been entrusted with greater and greater responsibility over decades of faithful service. She is well qualified to continue ATF's successes of recent years, including helping the [Justice] Department investigate and prosecute more firearms offenders than ever before. I want to thank Tom Brandon for his 30 years of service to ATF and 36 years of service to this country, and I thank Acting Deputy Director Lombardo for her willingness to accept this new role leading one of the most effective law enforcement agencies in the world."

Lombardo has served as the associate deputy director and chief operating officer for the agency since March 2018, with responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the agency. She has served as a special agent at ATF since 1992 and has risen through the ranks as a career employee, holding numerous management positions that include assistant director of Human Resources and Professional Development, deputy assistant director of Field Operations' Central Region, special agent in charge of the Tampa Field Division, assistant special agent in Charge of the New York Field Division, and assistant country attaché in Toronto, Canada. She will be the first woman to lead ATF in its history.
