Ricardo Martinez, M.D., administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), has named Michael Russell as NHTSA's Director of Public and Consumer Affairs.

"Mike Russell brings to NHTSA years of experience in successfully translating public policy into plain language for our customers -- Americans and their families," said Dr. Martinez. "His work with the National Performance Review will be a good fit with our efforts to keep NHTSA out front in providing world class service to the American public."

Before joining the Vice President's reinvention task force, Russell had served as press secretary to U.S. Surgeon General M. Joycelyn Elders, M.D. He filled the same slot with both U.S. Senator Donald Riegle (Mich.) and Congressman William D. Ford (Mich.). Russell had an extensive television news career in Pennsylvania and Michigan before coming to Washington. He is a graduate of the Boston University School of Public Communication and served in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Russell and his wife, Rita, reside in Sterling, Va.
