Subject: Acosta Announcement

I would have preferred to do this in person, but unfortunately, due to the timing, I have to communicate this announcement by email.

Today, I am announcing my departure from NASA as the press secretary and deputy assistant administrator for Public Affairs, effective Jan. 2nd. I have accepted a position as a managing director at Qorvis Communications, a Washington, DC public affairs firm. David Mould will assume the press secretary duties upon my departure.

During my almost four years at NASA, it has been a tremendous honor to work with some of the smartest and most talented people I’ve ever been associated with in my professional career. I will continue to promote American’s space agency and the wonderful things that we do. I wish you well in all your future endeavors.
