These appointees bring a wealth of diverse experience to their roles and reflect the Biden-Harris Administration’s early focus on our important mission. As additional appointees are named in the coming weeks and months, updates will be provided on a regular basis. I’m grateful for everyone’s support as we continue to grow our team and work together to advance our collective goals.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to Jun Jin, who has been serving as the Acting General Counsel, and Erica Carr, who has been serving as the Acting Executive Secretary. Jun will return to his role as Deputy General Counsel, and Erica will return to her role as Deputy Executive Secretary. Thank you both for your leadership during this time of transition.
