Prior to his appointment with Peace Corps, Charles Brooks served as Group Director of New Business Development at Planning Systems Inc., a Reston, Virginia based company specializing in scientific engineering. Charles was responsible for developing and implementing the company's marketing strategy. In addition to his management and leadership skills, Charles brings a wealth of recruitment, placement and training experience to his new position at Peace Corps. Charles served in the United States Navy for 31 years, first as a Naval aviator, and has held recruiting positions as District Commander, Regional Commander and Deputy Commander for all aspects of Naval recruitment. After retiring from the Navy, Charles managed the Navy Marine Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) scholarship program. Charles received a Masters of Science degree in Industrial Relations from the United States International University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations from the Naval Postgraduate School.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank Abel Ruiz for his service as Acting Director of VRS. Abel has now returned to his permanent position as Manager of the Dallas Recruiting Office and Mada McGill will serve as the Acting Director of VRS until Charles arrives on August 1. We are very grateful to Abel for his assistance during the transition period.

Please join me in welcoming Keith, Henry and Chuck to the Peace Corps.
