|Info||Kip Hawley’s extensive transportation and technology experience in both the private and public sectors will bring an innovative era to his tenure of Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). He was nominated by President Bush on May 6, 2005, confirmed by the Senate on July 22, and sworn in by Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Michael Jackson on July 27. |
This is the second time Hawley has occupied a duty station at TSA. After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta tapped him to lead “Go-Teams” of government and private sector experts who tackled the monumental task of building a new federal agency at warp speed. Deadlines were met and TSA was created.
Hawley brings more than 20 years of transportation and technology to TSA, now part of the Department of Homeland Security with security responsibilities across all modes of transportation. In executive positions at Union Pacific Railroad and at companies specializing in supply chain services, Hawley delivered technology solutions applicable to all forms of transportation.
He also has broad government experience, having previously served on the Air Traffic Services Subcommittee of the Federal Aviation Administration. In 1992, President George H.W. Bush appointed Hawley to the National Commission on Intermodal Transportation. Earlier, he was a Deputy Assistant and Special Assistant to President Reagan. Hawley also served as Deputy Assistant Secretary and Executive Director of Governmental Affairs for the Department of Transportation, responsible for strategic planning for departmental legislative proposals and budgets.
Hawley earned a J.D. degree from the University of Virginia Law School and a B.A. from Brown University.
