Nathan Houser to Lead Deloitte National Security Sector

Deloitte Deloitte announced on Sept. 22 that Nathan Houser, a principal in Deloitte Consulting LLP, has been selected to lead its national security sector.

Deloitte’s national security sector serves clients across the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the U.S. Department of Justice and the national intelligence community. With the support of over 1,400 practitioners, Deloitte provides comprehensive services and supports mission-critical operations that protect the security of our nation.

Prior to taking on the national security sector leadership role, Houser led the systems integration service line across the federal marketplace and served as the lead client service partner for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection accounts.

Houser has more than 15 years of experience leading and managing large-scale, public sector transformation programs with federal, state, and local governments, both domestically and abroad.

“We are very pleased to be working with Nathan in his new role as Deloitte national security sector leader,” said Janet Foutty, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and federal practice leader. “Nathan’s experience in delivering large complex programs for TSA and other DHS components is a tremendous asset for Deloitte’s national security clients as they look to develop new and innovative operating models for safeguarding our citizens.

Houser has been with Deloitte since 1997 and has led a broad range of business, technology and operational transformation initiatives at TSA and DHS, ultimately helping to streamline business operations, improve data quality and service efficiency, and reduce costs. Most recently, he served as Deloitte’s program manager for the $500 million DHS professional and program management support services contract and participated on the Deloitte executive committee for the Deloitte contract vehicle project management office, which manages over $75 billion of potential contracts for the organization.

Houser holds a Master of Science in public policy and management and a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering and public policy from Carnegie Mellon University.
