NEW YORK, NY.- The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced today that Regina Lombardo has been appointed to the role of Chief Security Officer for the Museum.

Ms. Lombardo is currently Acting Director of the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) in Washington, D.C., where she is responsible for upholding the Bureau’s mission and overseeing all operational activities, including the management of more than 5,000 employees and a $1.4 billion annual budget. She is the ATF’s first female Acting Director.

Dan Weiss, President and CEO of the Museum commented: “The safety and security of The Met’s staff, visitors, and collection is our top priority. Regina Lombardo brings 30 years of professional expertise as a security, law enforcement, and risk management professional to this essential role, and her dedication to being an effective leader in the field makes her an ideal Chief Security Officer for The Met. I look forward to welcoming her to the Museum this fall.”

Ms. Lombardo said: “It is a great honor and a privilege to be entrusted with the safety and security of The Met, and as a native New Yorker, it’s something of a homecoming for me. I am thrilled to join the Museum, and look forward to supporting and leading The Met’s security team to continued success.”

A member of the Senior Executive Service and an experienced law enforcement professional, Ms. Lombardo began her law enforcement career in 1992 as a special agent in the ATF Miami Field Division. She served in various management positions there, including Assistant Director of the Office of Human Resources and Professional Development; Deputy Assistant Director of Field Operations’ Central Region; Special Agent in Charge of the Tampa Field Division: Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the New York Field Division; Chief, ATF’s Leadership Institute; Group Supervisor for the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force in Miami, Florida; and as Assistant ATF Country Attaché in Toronto, Canada.

Ms. Lombardo holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of South Florida and is a member of several organizations, including Women in Federal Law Enforcement, the National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives, the Florida Sheriffs Association, the International Associations of Chiefs of Police, and Major City Chiefs.

At The Met, Ms. Lombardo will report to Sharon Cott, Senior Vice President, Secretary, and General Counsel, and will be responsible for the Museum’s entire Security operation, overseeing the Museum’s policies and practices that ensure the safety of staff, visitors, the collection, and the buildings. She will be a key partner in the Museum’s operational planning, and serve as a liaison with local and federal law enforcement agencies.
