IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION SERVICE: CHRIS SALE APPOINTED DEPUTY COMMISSIONER

 WASHINGTON, Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) Commissioner Doris Meissner has selected Myrta King (Chris) Sale as INS deputy commissioner, a position she has held in an acting capacity since Meissner's arrival on Oct. 18. Before then, Sale had served as acting commissioner since Jan. 23.
 Sale's appointment as deputy commissioner was announced by Meissner and endorsed by Attorney General Janet Reno yesterday following Meissner's formal swearing-in ceremony at the Department of Justice.
 "As acting commissioner, Chris skillfully navigated a spate of crises this past year and enjoys the respect of INS staff and others throughout the government," Meissner said. "Her appointment provides the basis for restoring full responsibility for the daily operations of the agency to the deputy commissioner (and) demonstrates my commitment to select experienced, career officials for key senior positions."
 Sale has been with the INS since May 1991, when she became the agency's first executive associate commissioner for management, overseeing all matters related to budget and finance, data processing, personnel and general administration of the agency. She was instrumental in defining the function and setting the direction of management improvements recommended by recent Department of Justice and General Accounting Office audits.
 From 1984 to 1989 she was a chief financial officer in the Veterans Administration (VA), then was named chief of staff to the assistant secretary for finance and planning in 1989 when the VA became the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
 Among other former positions, she served as vice president, finance and administration, and treasurer of National Public Radio; director of the Office of Management and Budget for the state of Ohio; director of financial management for the Peace Corps; and acting budget director for the federal Office of Personnel Management.
 She is a graduate of Boston University and holds an M.B.A. from The American University. She is married to Kenneth E. Sale and has two sons.
