Rozek returns to White House for counterterrorism role

Joseph Rozek has left the private sector and returned to the White House as a special assistant to the president and senior director for domestic counterterrorism. Rozek took up his new responsibilities Aug. 23.

For a little more than a year, Rozek had been employed by System Planning Corp. of Arlington, Va., as vice president for security, operations and technology. He came to SPC after serving as senior director for threat countermeasures and incident management in the Office of Homeland Security from November 2001 until May 2003.

While at SPC, Rozek played a role in expanding the company's homeland security business, especially in the areas of crisis and emergency preparedness, emerging threat countermeasures and critical infrastructure protection.
