Masterminded Screener Federalization
The TSA said Tuesday that Deputy
Administrator Stephen McHale will step down from his post later
this month after 23 years of federal service.
McHale has served as Deputy of the agency since January 2002 and
has had responsibility for overseeing the federalization of
aviation security and the transfer of TSA from the Department of
Transportation to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in
March 2003. He plans to spend the rest of the summer with his
family, hiking in New Zealand and California, before pursuing
opportunities in the private sector.
"It has been a pleasure working with Stephen McHale. He is a
professional and his contributions to TSA’s mission in the
war on terrorism are greatly appreciated," said Rear Adm. David M.
Stone, TSA’s Acting Administrator
TSA Chief of Staff, Carol DiBattiste, will assume McHale’s
duties as Acting Deputy Administrator following his departure.
"I am immensely proud of this organization and what we have
accomplished," McHale said. "If you assess how much security has
been strengthened in a short 2 ½ years, the phenomenal work
done by TSA’s dedicated employees becomes obvious."
