The Homeland Security Department's CFO is heading to the IRS, the agency confirms.
Sherry will be the deputy commissioner for operations support, replacing Beth Tucker, who retired at the end of September.
Sherry will join the IRS Nov. 4 after spending more than six years at DHS.
In her new role, Sherry will direct IRS' support functions, including the CFO, human capital office, information technology, privacy and agencywide shared services.
The deputy commissioner is one of the top two positions at the IRS under the service's commissioner.
She becomes the fourth senior official to join the agency this year. Werfel became the acting commissioner in May after the scandal involving the IRS improperly singling out conservative groups for special scrutiny.
