The Executive Secretariat is a mission critical function that provides communications support for the Assistant Secretary, who leads the coordinated national effort to reduce risk to the Nation’s critical infrastructure posed by acts of terrorism, and increasing the Nation’s preparedness, timely response, and rapid recovery in the event of attack, natural disaster, or other emergency.

Prior to his appointment in IP, Mr. Owens provided program management and policy support to the Executive Director of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) located within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) based in Bethesda, MD. His experience in Logistics offered a unique perspective on mitigating the property management challenges within the Institute.

His efforts earned him the Director’s Award for Exceptional Service in 2009, underscoring his ability to plan strategically and successfully execute.
In 2005, he began work with Lockheed Martin to support the response and recovery efforts to one the largest natural disasters in the history of the United States, Hurricane Katrina.
