The NTSB has selected Jeff Rich and Hector Casanova as the Regional Directors of Aviation Safety for the Southwest Regional Office (Gardena, California), and the South Central Regional Office (Arlington, Texas), respectively.

He has served as a Field Air Safety Investigator, a Senior Air Safety Investigator and a Supervisory Air Safety Investigator.
