Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey Announces Brian A. Benczkowski to Serve as Chief of Staff for the Department of Justice

WASHINGTON – Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey announced today that he will appoint Brian A. Benczkowski to serve as his Chief of Staff, effective August 15, 2008. Benczkowski, 38, currently serves as chief of staff to Deputy Attorney General Mark Filip.
Benczkowski will succeed Brett Gerry, who will be leaving the Department after more than four years in the Executive Branch, and who has served as the Attorney General’s chief of staff since his confirmation. Gerry’s previous service included tenures as the Acting Assistant Attorney General for Legal Policy and as the National Security Division’s first Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Law and Policy. He will be leaving for a position in the private sector.
"When I asked Brett if he would serve as my chief of staff last fall, I was aware that he might not be able to remain in that position until the end of my tenure," said Attorney General Mukasey. "I am very grateful for Brett’s exemplary service to the Department and to the nation, and for his wise counsel during his time as my chief of staff. He is an outstanding lawyer and a fine manager, and I wish him and his family the best as he starts this new chapter in his career."
