Helping to strengthen and create TSA leaders

Spotlight On

 Thomas WebbThomas Webb is a Transportation Security Manager (TSM) at the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). Thomas joined TSA in September 2002 and progressed through the ranks from TSO to his current position. He is a member of the National Advisory Council (NAC) Alumni and is a recent graduate of the Mid-Level Leadership Development (MLDP) program.

What I do matters because as a manager I am in a position to help strengthen and create leaders in the field. I love that I am able to work on a team as successful as the one here at CVG. One of my goals as a TSM is to help our future leaders move forward with their careers in TSA. My own experience with TSA’s leadership development programs really helps me help others in a positive way. I feel fortunate to be in a position which empowers me to mentor and support future leaders.

The most rewarding part of my job is helping people, whether it is the Officers who are on my team or the passengers who fly out each day. It is the connections I am able to make with people and the networks I have built over the past 11 years that have made what I do so enjoyable. In my role I am able to help our Officers understand the importance of the mission and why what they do matters each day.

I am most proud of the individuals I work with day in and day out and the relationships I have developed with my colleagues at CVG and across the country. Simply put, I have been lucky enough to work with some of the most intelligent, hard-working, and caring individuals anyone would want to work with. Whether it was my time with the National Advisory Council or my experience here at CVG, I have been lucky enough to learn leadership qualities and skills from everyone I have worked with. The continued success of TSA depends on strong leaders at every level of the organization. One of my top priorities every day is to pass on what I have learned to our future leaders.
