May 15, 2017

AAEI is pleased to announce that Acting CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan will deliver a luncheon keynote speech at the upcoming 96th Annual AAEI Conference and Expo, June 20-22, 2017 in Austin, Texas.

President Trump nominated Mr. McAleenan in March to serve as Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

McAleenan has been the Deputy Commissioner since 2014 and currently functions as the agency’s Chief Operating Officer and senior career official.

In the White House announcement in March, McAleenan was described having “developed strategies that protect the Nation’s borders from terrorism, and attack transnational criminal networks, while ensuring the flow of legal commerce and travel.”

On McAleenan’s biography on the CBP website, he is credited with advancing “the development of CBP’s trade transformation agenda, designed to help America compete in the global economy.”

Mr. McAleenan received a 2015 Presidential Rank Award, the nation’s highest civil service award.
