WASHINGTON — The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) today announced that Paul Huang joined the Bureau as the new Deputy Director. Paul will support BSEE’s efforts to promote safety, protect the environment, and conserve offshore resources through vigorous regulatory oversight and enforcement.

“BSEE plays a critical role in regulating offshore energy production and assisting the Department in tackling the climate crisis through the advancement of renewable energy,” said Director Kevin Sligh. “Paul’s commitment to public service and his years of experience at the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be invaluable for BSEE as we expand to cover renewable energy production on the Outer Continental Shelf. Paul will be a tremendous asset for BSEE and our continued mission of safe and environmentally sustainable energy production.”

“I’m excited to work with a fantastic team at BSEE to continue fostering safety and environmental compliance while making advancements to combat climate change,” said Deputy Director Huang. “I look to bring a focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in all we do, through a collaborative, people-focused, and intellectually-curious approach.”

Prior to BSEE, Paul served as the Assistant Administrator of Federal Insurance for the National Flood Insurance Program at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). He also served as the Acting Associate Administrator for Resilience and helped stand up the Climate Adaptation and Equity Enterprise Steering Committees for the Agency. In that role he helped to establish FEMA’s new Strategic Plan, and worked to improve program management, collaboration, and integration across the Resilience portfolio.
