Dan Brouillette, former senior vice president and public policy lead at the United Services Automobile Association, has taken his oath of office as deputy secretary of the Energy Department.
DOE said Tuesday Brouillette brings three decades of experience in the public and private sector, including roles in senior management teams, to his new position.
Brouillette previously worked at Ford Motor Company as a vice president in charge of domestic policy teams as well as a member of the automaker’s North American Operating Committee.
“I look forward to welcoming Dan back to the agency and utilizing his private sector management expertise as we work together to carry out the missions of the DOE,” said Energy Secretary Rick Perry.
Brouillette served as assistant secretary of energy for congressional and intergovernmental affairs during the administration of George W. Bush.
He was also a chief of staff to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce as well as a member of the Louisiana State Mineral and Energy Board.
