WASHINGTON – Jarrod Bruner, Associate Director for Administration (ADA) for the United States Marshal Service (USMS) has been names by President Joe Biden as a recipient of the 2023 Presidential Meritorious Executive Rank Award. 

The Presidential Rank Award is one of the most prestigious awards in federal career civil service and recognizes the exemplary contributions of civilian leaders throughout the federal workforce. The recipients are selected by the President of the United States based on their sustained high performance and contributions to federal service. 

“Jarrod has made a profound impact as the Associate Director for Administration since his appointment early this year,” said Ronald L. Davis, Director of the U.S. Marshal Service. “He is deserving of this recognition, and we are delighted to have his as part of our leadership team.”

ADA Bruner oversees the U.S. Marshals Service administrative line of business supporting the Agency's law enforcement missions. He is the principal administrative advisor to the Director, Deputy Director, and senior leadership supporting the Agency's Headquarters, 94 districts, and sub-offices nationwide. He ensures all resources are effectively and efficiently utilized while promoting equal employment opportunities, positive human relations, and open communication.

Bruner successfully led the Agency’s largest mission-critical modernization effort, developing a high-level system entitled Capture, which provides automated support for all USMS law enforcement missions. Capture is now the primary system used daily by USMS law enforcement—from investigations through arrests and imprisonment.

Throughout development, Bruner’s priority was to mitigate threats to officer safety by designing various Capture modules to increase situational awareness and provide more immediate access to critical information through mobile applications. 

Bruner began his United States Marshals Service career in 2012 as the Deputy Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Deputy Assistant Director for the Information Technology Division (ITD), where he also served as the Acting Chief Information Officer (CIO) from June 2015 through January 2016. Soon after joining the USMS, Bruner implemented Agency-wide program changes backed by data-driven alternative analyses, which resulted in program effectiveness gains, more than $11 million in recurring annual cost savings, and a number one cybersecurity ranking for the USMS.

Bruner is one of 17 Department of Justice employees to be recognized this year by the President for their exceptional leadership, exemplary accomplishments, and dedicated service over an extended period. Only five percent of career Senior Executive Service members may receive this award.
