The Department of Homeland Security has opened new slots in its Loaned Executive Program for private sector executives to hold government positions in travel and tourism programs.

Alejandro Mayorkas, DHS deputy secretary, said Wednesday the department intends to work with the private sector on developing policies and processes to coordinate homeland security services through the program.

“We want to leverage the private sector’s best talent to improve the travel experience for the American public and those who we welcome as visitors to our country,” added Mayorkas.

Participants will work for six months under the Transportation Security Administration and Customs and Border Protection, with an option to renew the assignment for another six months.
