WASHINGTON, DC – Public Printer Bruce James announced that he has tapped Benjamin Brink, a former high-tech industry entrepreneur, to be the Assistant Public Printer for the Security and Intelligent Documents Business Unit at the U.S. Government Printing Office. As Assistant Public Printer, Brink will lead the work in the areas of e-Passports, smartcard e-IDs, e-signature capabilities, and a multitude of secure documents containing embedded electronics. “Brink’s depth of knowledge in defense electronics and integrated circuits - coupled with his solid leadership and experience honed while leading technology firms - will be an asset to GPO as we pursue technological advancements in the realm of secure document production and encryption services,” said James. “Brink is highly regarded throughout the intelligence community and in the private sector, and I am confident he will lead the operations of our Security and Intelligent Documents Business Unit in providing for the ongoing needs of Congress and Federal agencies.” Brink brings to the GPO almost a quarter of a century of experience in the management of high technology companies. He has held the rank of CEO in the software, defense electronics, and medical electronics industries. Currently a Captain in the U.S. Navy (Reserve Component), Brink has commanded several intelligence reserve units and is the Chief Staff Officer of Reserve Intelligence Area Five in Denver, Colorado. “GPO has an excellent opportunity to build upon its core strengths to craft a powerful new set of secure, electronically enabled products and services,” said Brink. “I look forward to adding my technology and intelligence background as the leader of the highly skilled Security and Intelligent Documents team, building upon GPO’s traditional strengths with new technology for the future.” Brink holds an MBA from Harvard, a master’s in Operations Research from Stanford, and is a 2006 candidate for a master’s in Strategic Studies at the U.S. Army War College.
