The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) has announced a change in the agency's leadership team. 

Trevor Nelson will serve as the acting deputy inspector general for investigations, Heather Hill has been appointed as the deputy inspector general for inspections and evaluations, and Mervin Hyndman was appointed as the deputy inspector general for mission support. Nelson will temporarily replace James S. Jackson, whose retirement begins today, after more than 34 years of federal service.

"I thank Jim Jackson and am truly grateful for his many years of Federal service, especially for his service in leading TIGTA’s Office of Investigations," said Inspector General J. Russell George. “Jim’s leadership was exemplary, and Trevor Nelson will, I am sure, in like manner competently fulfill the duties of that leadership role in this acting assignment,” George added. "Throughout his service at TIGTA, Trevor has demonstrated the qualities of an effective and able leader in one of the largest and most important components of our organization."

Hill, who is currently  TIGTA’s assistant inspector general for audit, management services and exempt organizations, will oversee a team of analysts that provide a range of specialized services and products, including quick reaction reviews, onsite inspections, and in-depth evaluations of major departmental functions, activities, or programs. She was previously the director, special tax matters, for TIGTA’s Office of Inspections and Evaluations. Prior to joining TIGTA in 2011, she was an analyst at the Government Accountability Office, where she worked on a range of energy and agricultural issues as part of the Natural Resources and Environment team. 

Hyndman, the new deputy inspector general for mission support, previously served as acting deputy inspector general for mission support, director of human capital, and director of finance. Prior to joining TIGTA in 2007, Hyndman worked for the Department of Veteran Affairs, where he served as the senior advisor to the deputy assistant secretary for cyber and information security.. Hyndman began his civilian federal service career in April 2002, with the IRS, working with the Modernized e-File Program.
