New Mint Director David J. Ryder was sworn in April 12 by Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.
He is the 39th director, the Mint said. However, like Grover Cleveland’s two terms as President, Ryder has held the post before.
The Mint said he is considered to be the 34th director as well for his first tenure September 1992 to November 1993.
Ryder’s appointment by President Donald Trump finally ended a vacancy that had endured since January 2011, when Edmund C. Moy left the position.
He has gained a great deal of business experience since his first time at the Mint.
His resume shows that he previously held the position of Global Business Development Manager and Managing Director of Currency for Honeywell Authentication Technologies.
Ryder also served as CEO of Secure Products Corporation, which Honeywell acquired in 2007.
His prior government service includes appointments as Deputy Treasurer of the United States, Assistant to the Vice President, and Deputy Chief of Staff to Vice President Dan Quayle.
