He also oversees the company's government relations, marketing and communications, security, change management and program excellence functions as the chief of staff and is a member of the Department of Homeland Security's advisory council and the Aspen Homeland Security Forum.

He previously worked in the public sector as chief of staff to then DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and as special assistant to then Defense Department Secretary Robert Gates.
