HALLETT TO JOIN INTERNATIONAL TRADE FIRM AFTER CUSTOMS

 WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Commissioner of U.S. Customs and former U.S. Ambassador Carol Hallett today announced plans to join an international firm after leaving her government post later this month. Hallett will become associated with Clark Company, directed by William Clark, formerly deputy secretary of state, national security adviser and secretary of interior.
 Hallett will be resident in Washington, representing Clark Company in its operations also in London, Dublin, Vienna, Taipei and Mexico City. Hallett will continue her expertise in international relations, concentrating on issues of trade, energy and transportation.
 "I am honored by the invitation to rejoin Bill Clark and his growing company," Hallett said. "I am excited by this opportunity to expand the firm's client base and provide support on a broad range of issues from energy, to land development, to international negotiations to name just a few."
 Clark and Hallett have enjoyed a strong working relationship over the years dating back to Ronald Reagan's election as governor of California in 1966.
 "We look forward to Carol's arrival," Clark said. "Her hard-work ethic, determination and highly successful record will serve the company and our clients superbly."
 Hallett has been touted by many, including several members of Congress, as the leading candidate for the seat of Rep. Leon Panetta (D-Calif.), President-elect Clinton's Office of Management and Budget director-designate. Hallett and her husband, James, maintain a home in California's 16th congressional district.
 "I am deeply flattered by those who feel that I could best serve the interests of the 16th district," Hallett said. "I have been in public service for nearly 20 years, which is long enough. I feel the time is right to return to private life and leave the responsibilities of governing to the next crop of public servants."
 Summing up, Hallett said: "I will miss working with the dedicated men and women of the Customs Service who have devoted themselves to improving the way we do business and bettering our relationship with the trade community. They have my undying gratitude and admiration."
