The Transportation Security Administration appointed as a senior adviser at its D.C. headquarters an official who requested reassignment after quitting as federal security director of Newark Liberty International Airport, following a string of security lapses.
Barbara Powell, who served as TSA’s security director at the New Jersey airport since July 2007, has been promoted to the post of “senior adviser in the Office of Human Capital,” TSA said in a statement this week.
Before she left the Newark post, Powell was reportedly the subject of a blistering internal critique that found “inconsistent leadership” under her watch and “a work environment that is often fueled by fear of reprisal and retaliation.”
Powell has worked at the TSA for nine years, having also served as deputy security director at Newark Liberty and deputy assistant administrator for TSA’s Office of Security Technology.
When Powell announced her resignation as federal security director (FSD) to the 1,400 TSA employees at the Newark airport, she acknowledged the security lapses that had taken place there.
