Andrea Bright

Assistant Commissioner, Office of Human Resources Management, Enterprise Services, U.S. Customs and Border Protection

Assistant Commissioner Andrea Bright has been keeping the fires lit in the Office of Human Resources Management at U.S. Customs and Border Protection to keep the largest law enforcement agency in the nation staffed to achieve mission. From the 30×30 Initiative to increase women at CBP to 30 percent by 2030, hiring incentives for front-line officers, and leveraging social media to attract new recruits, Bright is working all fronts to find the right people to defend and protect the borders and facilitate legal trade and travel into the United States. She’s also furthering the reform and modernization of CBP policy on use-of-force policies and accountability processes; in May, CBP was granted direct-hire authority to increase criminal investigators to investigate allegations of serious misconduct on the part of CBP personnel, review use of force and critical incidents and in-custody deaths. Prior to serving as Assistant Commissioner, Bright served as the Chief Human Capital Officer and Chief Learning Officer at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), where she was responsible for overseeing all human resources functions and services for the agency. She also served in a variety of key leadership positions at OPM since 1996, including Deputy Associate Director for Human Resources Management/Deputy Chief Human Capital Officer, Deputy Human Resources Director, Manager of Classification and Assessment Policy, and Personnel Research Psychologist.
