W. Russ Webster is a 1977 graduate of the US Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut. During his 26 year military service, he served in two ships and commanded two shore stations, including USCG Group Woods Hole, Massachusetts, the largest shore rescue unit in the United States.

In 2001, he was the director for Coast Guard operations from Maine to New Jersey and coordinated regional operations in response to the 9 -11 terrorist attacks.
Upon retirement from the Coast Guard in 2003, he transitioned to DHS civilian service with the TSA, where he occupied three positions at Boston's Logan Airport, a Category X airport that was the hub for seven other airports within the state. During his four and a half years with TSA Boston, he co-led a planning effort with all regional stakeholders with a vested interest in preventing and responding to terrorist attacks in the transportation systems. That effort produced agreed upon memorandums of understanding and a shared strategic plan developed by and for the partners.
