Deborah A.P. Hersman

Deborah A.P. Hersman is president and CEO of the National Safety Council.

As President & CEO of the National Safety Council and former Chair of the National Transportation Safety Board, Debbie enjoys learning about every mode of transportation: she soloed in a Piper Tomahawk at age 17, earned a commercial driver's license with passenger and school bus endorsements, was a certified child passenger safety technician and can ride a motorcycle - but since she plays it safe, she prefers to leave all of the above to the professionals.
