Former FMC counsel David Tubman has served in FMC Commissioner Doyle's office as counsel since 2013 at U.S. Federal Maritime Commission. After being cleared by the White House and U.S. Department of Transportation late last week, starting today (February 22, 2016), Mr. Tubman will be serving as Chief Counsel in U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration (MARAD).
William Doyle, U.S. Federal Maritime Commissioner, said in a statement, "David and I have been working together since the beginning of 2002. I know that David will succeed in his new role. He is not only an excellent attorney but simply put -- a great person. I have selected a new counsel, Patrick Parsons, who served as clerk in my office when he attended American University Law School. Mr. Parsons is finishing a project at the Department of Treasury and then he will transition over to the FMC as my counsel."
