From EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson:
I would like to share news of three key appointments to the senior staff at EPA: Lisa Heinzerling, who has been named Associate Administrator for the Office of Policy, Economics and Innovation (OPEI); David McIntosh, who has been appointed as Associate Administrator for the Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Relations (OCIR); and Seth Oster, who recently assumed the position of Associate Administrator for the Office of Public Affairs (OPA).
I am extremely pleased that Lisa, David and Seth have accepted these appointments. They each bring extraordinary experience and expertise to their respective positions and will play integral roles in working with me and the rest of the EPA’s senior management in helping to move our agenda forward. All three appointments are effective immediately.
We are particularly pleased to report Lisa Heinzerling’s move. Again from Lisa Jackson:
Lisa has spent the past months as my chief advisor on climate issues, helping move our efforts forward at a critical time. At OPEI, Lisa will bring her considerable experience and intellect to bear on solving some of our most pressing environmental and economic challenges. She will also continue to play a role advising me on climate matters.
