President Bush plans to appoint Andrew B. Maner, a senior Customs and Border Protection official, to be the Homeland Security Department's new chief financial officer, the White House said.
Maner will succeed Bruce Marshall Carnes, who left the position last year.
Maner is chief of staff and director of the transition management office at Customs and Border Protection, which falls under the Border and Transportation Security Directorate. In his CFO job, he will report to undersecretary for management Janet Hale.
Maner joined Customs in January 2002 as director of the Office of Trade Relations. Formerly, he was vice president for development and sales of ICG Commerce Inc. of Jenkintown, Pa., and a founding partner of Aligne Inc., a technology consulting firm in Wayne, Pa.
He worked in the White House under the administration of President George H.W. Bush and continued to work for the elder Bush as director of press and political affairs in the former president's Houston office.
In his new job, Maner will oversee the progress of the Emerge2 program, which is intended to build an administrative and IT infrastructure for most of the department's finance, accounting and back-office operations
