The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center For Tobacco Products (CTP) is pleased to announce that Erin Brandt will serve as director of CTP’s Office of Management.

Brandt currently holds the position of deputy director in CTP’s Office of Management.

“Brandt has more than a decade of experience working in leadership positions in administrative management,” the CTP stated in a release. “She has extensive experience overseeing a wide range of administrative services, including human capital, information technology, financial management, administrative management, acquisitions and grants, ethics, facilities, and risk management and analysis.”

Brandt joined CTP in 2013 as the Office of Management’s Management analysis officer, and became the deputy director in 2014, a position she held until assuming her current role as acting director.

Before joining FDA, Brandt was a management analyst at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and worked for several non-profit organizations, including Global Philanthropy Alliance, World Resources Institute, and Habitat for Humanity as an AmeriCorps VISTA.

She earned a master’s of Public Policy from the University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs and holds a bachelor’s of Science in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Brandt was selected after an extensive nationwide search, multiple interview panels that evaluated a substantial and well-qualified applicant pool, and clearance through important FDA ethics and security processes. CTP is excited for Ms. Brandt to continue her service with CTP, with an effective date of June 16th.
