Pamela Powers

The Department of Veterans Affairs has appointed Pamela Powers, a more than 28-year U.S. Air Force veteran, as chief of staff and named three other senior officials to help implement President Trump’s priorities for the VA.

Powers is a retired Air Force colonel who previously held a similar position in the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, the department said Monday.

Chris Syrek, formerly executive director of VA’s state and local government affairs, will serve as deputy chief of staff.

Former acting VA Secretary Peter O’Rourke will assume a senior adviser role and Jacquelyn Hayes-Byrd, who most recently served as acting chief of staff, will be acting assistant for human resources and administration.
