CBP announces new Port Director at Bush Intercontinental Airport

Charles Perez

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recently announced the selection of a new CBP airport director for George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).

Charles Perez, a 28-year CBP veteran, assumed the CBP port director position Nov. 16 and became CBP’s senior manager at IAH responsible for CBP operations at the 8th busiest airport for international travel. Perez will also oversee CBP operations at Sugar Land Regional Airport.

“I am honored to serve as the Houston airport director,” Perez said. “Having served at this airport for seven years, the learning curve won’t be steep, but I do look forward to the added responsibility of overseeing all CBP operations across the airport including our trade operations. I also look forward to continuing our successful partnership with the Houston Airport System.”

Perez began his public service in 1986 as a K-9 officer with the U.S. Customs Service in Brownsville, TX. His previous assignments included a tour in Port of Columbus, NM; Port of El Paso, TX; Pre-clearance in Vancouver, the Houston Seaport, Port of Dallas/Fort Worth, TX as well as CBP Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Immediately before assuming duties as CBP’s Houston airport director, Perez served as the assistant port director for passenger operations at IAH. He is a graduate of New Mexico State University and the Command Leadership Institute at the University of Chicago.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
