Mark Koumans, formerly a member of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, has joined the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services as deputy director. Koumans will succeed Tracy Renaud, who will return to her previous role as an associate director for the agency's management directorate, USCIS said Friday.
“We look forward to Mark joining our team, where he will quickly contribute to our mission of administering the nation’s lawful immigration system,” said Francis Cissna, director at USCIS.
Prior to CBP, Koumans worked as a deputy assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security and served under the U.S. Foreign Service for more than a decade.
