Alan Bersin

Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan Bersin has announced his resignation after nearly two years at the CBP.

“My service as commissioner has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my public life,” said Bersin. “I am immensely proud of the significant and meaningful achievements we have made on our borders and at our nation’s ports of entry.”

Bersin’s resignation is effective as of Dec. 30. President Obama appointed Bersin as commissioner in March 2010, where he oversaw a 57,000 employee work force and managed a budget of more than $11 billion.

Prior to joining CBP, Bersin served as assistant secretary for international affairs and special representatives for border affairs in the Department of Homeland Security.

“It has been my honor to serve with them and I depart with full confidence that they will continue to secure our borders and foster the lawful exchange of people and goods with vigilance, service and integrity,” said Bersin.
