The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) named Dr. Mark Stevens as its new executive officer (EO).

In his new role, Stevens serves as a primary advisor to the NIDCD director and other senior officials, providing strategic guidance on the institute’s administrative and financial management functions. He is also director of NIDCD’s Office of Administration, which includes the administrative, financial and information systems management branches, as well as the office of communication and the science policy and planning branch.

“Dr. Stevens is a highly accomplished administrator and leader with more than a decade of hands-on experience in NIH policies and processes,” said NIDCD Director Dr. Debara L. Tucci, “His expertise and strategic foresight make him an ideal selection for NIDCD executive officer.”

Before joining NIDCD, Stevens was the deputy EO at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Prior to that post, Stevens was the lead management and program analyst in the NIH Immediate Office of Management.

Stevens has also served as lead administrative officer for the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences and the National Cancer Institute, and as a budget analyst at the National Eye Institute. He began his NIH career in 2009 as an intern in the NIH Administrative Fellows Program.

Stevens earned a doctorate in public administration from the University of Baltimore, a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Delaware, and a bachelor’s degree in political science and economics from Washington College in Chestertown, Md.
