Tomarchio named DHS deputy director of intelligence

President Bush has appointed Jack Thomas Tomarchio, a former Army prosecutor and colonel in the Army reserve, as the principal deputy assistant secretary of Homeland Security for information analysis.

Tomarchio was previously a shareholder in the federal government relations section of the law firm Buchanan Ingersoll, and co-chair of the firm's National Security Practice Group. The company announced today that Tomarchio will leave the firm Jan. 9 to take the government post.

In his new role, Tomarchio will help strengthen DHS' intelligence capabilities and manage intelligence that could be useful to the country in its defense against terrorism and other threats. In so doing, Tomarchio will serve as liaison to several entities, including state and local governments, Congress, intelligence agencies and major companies in critical infrastructure industries.

Tomarchio has a bachelor's degree in history from Pennsylvania State University, a master's degree in strategic studies from the Army War College and a master's degree in governmental administration from the Fels Center of Government at the University of Pennsylvania. He earned his J.D. degree from the Vermont Law School.
