Schoem assumed the position of Executive Director of the International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization (ICPHSO) on October 15, 2015, after more than forty years at the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).  His last position at CPSC was in a senior leadership role as the Deputy Director of the Office of Compliance and Field Operations where he headed compliance and enforcement activities.  His responsibilities included working with Commission staff and industry on the identification of consumer product defects, negotiation of voluntary recalls and efforts to reduce the risk of injury from consumer products through safe design.
