Kevin Whitaker became the new Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Venezuela on August 28, 2005.

The Deputy Chief of Mission is the Embassy’s number-two position, behind the ambassador. When Ambassador Brownfield is absent, Whitaker will temporarily act as Chief of Mission, carrying the title of Charge d’Affaires.
Kevin Whitaker is a 25-year veteran of the Foreign Service; he has worked at U.S. Embassies in London, Jamaica, Tegucigalpa, and Managua. He has also worked in the Department in a number of capacities, including stints as country officer for El Salvador, Spain, and France, and as deputy director for the office of Mexican affairs, and later for the office of Cuban affairs. From 2002-2005, Whitaker was the coordinator of the office of Cuban affairs.
Whitaker is a career member of the Senior Foreign Service, with the rank of Counselor. He is a graduate of the University of Virginia, and his foreign languages are French and Spanish. He is married to Elizabeth Whitaker, a Senior Foreign Service officer currently serving as Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Western Hemisphere affairs. Their 11-year-old son, Daniel, pitches and plays outfield for the Arlington County Babe Ruth All-Star Team.
The reception offered by William Brownfield at his beautiful residence included many high-profile guests from all sectors of society-business, political, cultural, media and the diplomatic corps. Everyone All had the opportunity to meet the new member of the embassy in a very relaxed cocktail. Whitaker was introduced by Brownfield as a very important part of the embassy.
