In January 2012, Mr. Roach joined the offices as deputy executive director after serving five years as director of national plans at the Transportation Security Administration.

Following the air cargo plot of 2010, Mr. Roach led the Global Mail Working Group, established by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano under her Air Cargo Security Working Group.

A retired Brigadier General, Roach spent 32 years in the U.S. Army Transportation Corps serving six times as commanding officer of transportation and logistics commands in the active Army and Army Reserve.
