White House Calls for Art House

Simsbury resident to serve Obama's National Intelligence team

Webster Bank exec Art House is heeding President Obama's call to service.

House will bring years of experience as a communications expert and in international affairs to his new job as communications director for the Director of National Intelligence, reports The Register Citizen.

"The opportunity, as I see it, is an opportunity to serve the country," House said Tuesday. "Quite honestly, international affairs is my field, and I'm looking forward to becoming re-engaged in it."

The 66-year-old House spent the 1970s in D.C., serving under the likes of Henry Kissinger and Brent Scowcroft, and on the staff of three U.S. senators.

House will continue to live in Simsbury, rather than move to Washington.

"The greatest of luxuries is not leaving Connecticut," House said. "That's why they invented Southwest Airlines."
