Randolph Alles, former director of the U.S. Secret Service, has been appointed acting deputy under secretary for management at the Department of Homeland Security, replacing former Deputy Under Secretary Chip Fulghum.
He will oversee management programs, including financial, human capital, information technology, procurement, security and asset management, Kevin McAleenan, acting homeland security secretary and 2019 Wash100 Award winner, said in a statement posted Friday. Alles left his role with the Secret Service last week after two years.
“I thank Mr. Alles for his willingness to serve, and I look forward to continuing to work together in pursuit of our shared mission,” McAleenan said.
Alles served in the Marine Corps for 35 years and was the chief operating officer for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. James Murray will take office as the new director of the Secret Service in May.
