FAA Administrator Marion
C. Blakey, has named Ventris Cassandra Gibson as the agency’s
assistant administrator for human resource management. Gibson will
head the office responsible for personnel, workforce planning,
recruitment and placement, professional development and
performance-based compensation systems.
Gibson comes to the FAA from the Department of Veterans Affairs
(VA), where she served as deputy assistant secretary for human
resources management, overseeing a $59 million program with 226,000
employees in the United States and abroad.
“Ventris knows human resource management, and she knows
aviation,” said Blakey. “As a former military
controller, she understands the demands on the FAA. As an
innovator, she will bring a fresh approach to serving our employees
and the taxpayer.”
At Veterans Affairs, Gibson directed the federal
government’s second largest and most complex human resources
management program, which includes a separate and unique personnel
system for health care professionals.
Over the course of her career at Veterans Affairs, she developed
the department’s first nurse recruiter training program,
restructured all of the human resources offices in the Veterans
Benefits Administration, and developed award-winning innovative
practices to prevent workforce discrimination and improve complaint
processing. As deputy assistant secretary for resolution
management, Gibson improved the VA’s complaint processing
from nearly last to best in the government. She was also recognized
by Congress for creating and managing the best Equal Employment
Opportunity program in the federal government.
Gibson also developed and implemented a child-care subsidy
program described by the Office of Personnel Management as the best
in the government. Gibson served in the U.S. Navy from 1974 to 1977
as an air traffic controller in various locations around the world.
She attended the University of Maryland’s University College
and St. James Biblical Institute.
