Mark Hatfield is set to retire from the Transportation Security Administration as deputy administrator by the end of November, Federal News Radio reported Friday.
TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger told the agency’s staff in an email that Hatfield will join Miami International Airport as chief security officer, Meredith Somers reports.
“Mark has served honorably with TSA for 13 years… and we will all miss his experience, his counsel and his presence,” Neffenger said, according to the report.
Hatfield has served as federal security director at the Miami airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport before he took the deputy administrator role with TSA.
He has also held the position of assistant administrator for TSA’s office of public affairs, Somers reports.
Hatfield has worked as vice president at Metiom, managing director of Burson-Marsteller and senior director of corporate communications at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
