EPA Names New Acting Deputy Administrator

In late August, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy announced the appointment of Lisa Feldt to serve as the Acting Deputy Administrator.  Feldt steps into the slot vacated by Bob Perciasepe who has left the Agency to work in the private sector.

Feldt, who has been in McCarthy’s office as an associate deputy administrator for the past eight months, comes to the position from the Agency’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) where she was the deputy assistant administrator.  She also has experience in the energy field from her time with the Environmental Management Program at Department of Energy.
