WASHINGTON - The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has named Patrick J. Broderick as the Federal Security Director at the Quad Cities Airport. Broderick, who has served in Moline, Ill., as the Assistant Federal Security Director for the past two years, will assume leadership of all TSA activities in Moline and spoke airports in Cedar Rapids, Dubuque and Burlington, Iowa.
"Over the past two years, Pat Broderick has demonstrated strong leadership skills and a true commitment to the safety of the nation's air travelers," said Rear Adm. David M. Stone, USN (Ret.), TSA's Acting Administrator. "His continued service to the TSA is greatly appreciated."
Prior to joining TSA, Broderick was with the Department of the Army where he worked in a variety of personnel management positions, both stateside and abroad. He was given the Commander's Award several times and under his direction, Broderick's office was recognized as the Army Outstanding Human Resources Office. Broderick served nearly 15 years as the Human Resources Director at Rock Island (Ill.) Arsenal.
In addition to his professional experience, Broderick has extended his skills to the local community, serving as a Red Cross volunteer at the local, state and national level, a member of the Foster Care Review Board and past member of a number of community based volunteer groups.
The position of federal security director was created by the Aviation and Transportation Security Act signed by President Bush on November 19, 2001.
