Stefanie Stauffer - President and Chief Executive Officer

Stefanie retired in December 2012 as a Senior Executive with over 41 years of federal government service, all of it in the intelligence field with an emphasis on information sharing with the private sector, law enforcement and transportation stakeholders. She retired from the Transportation Security Administration having served as the first SES Director of Current Intelligence & Analysis (2003-2006), only Senior Intelligence Advisor to the National Capitol Region working DCA, IAD and BWI airports (2006-2008) and first Regional Field Intelligence Coordinator managing Field Intelligence Officers (FIO) stationed east of the Mississippi and directing the FIO program nationwide (2008-2010).

From 1991-2002 Stefanie was Manager of the Strategic Analysis Division, Office of Intelligence, Federal Aviation Administration. She was the first person to hold this position, a recommendation in the “Report of the President’s Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism” which involved the restructuring/expansion of FAA’s intelligence function in the aftermath of the bombing of Pan Am 103. Following the September 11th attacks, she assumed the position of Special Assistant with primary responsibility for all issues related to September 11th (both for the FAA and then TSA) to include the intelligence lead on the Zacarias Moussaoui and Richard Reid cases, working closely with the TSA Office of Chief Counsel and other government agencies.

While at the Department of State from 1976 to 1991 Stefanie held several “first” positions – Chief of the Private Sector Liaison Staff of the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC), another recommendation of the President’s Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism; Chief of Diplomatic Security’s Threat Analysis Group and later Division, both a result of the mandated creation of the Bureau of Diplomatic Security. Hired as a Diplomatic Security Special Agent but also dual-hatted as the senior (and only) Middle East analyst, Stefanie traveled extensively in the Middle East. She conducted intelligence advances for SecState Vance and was the only State analyst assigned to investigate major anti-U.S. terrorist incidents in the Middle East.

She started her federal government career with the U.S. Secret Service as an intelligence analyst in the Office of Intelligence (1971-1976), one of the first six hired by the agency.

Among her accomplishments at TSA were the creation and direction of the Red Cell, Chem/Bio Task Force (which provided mandated input to DHS’ Pandemic Influenza Task Force), Network Information Officer Program and FIO HSIN-CS Web Portal. While at State she created both the OSAC Electronic Database and Bulletin Board, both predecessors to today’s very successful OSAC website. Throughout her career Stefanie held a Top Secret/SCI clearance.
