Chris Emery Biography

From January 1986 until March 1994, Chris Emery held one of the most unique jobs in the U.S. government—a White House Usher. The Usher’s Office provides oversight and management for The White House Executive Residence, its staff, and surrounding 18 acres of grounds.

The ushers are responsible for taking care of the First Family’s most reserved area—their living quarters within The White House. Because their privacy is paramount, little is known about the ushers who work there or the duties with which they are entrusted. Emery was honored to have met seven presidents and work directly for three of them—Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and Bill Clinton.

During his twenty-nine years in the federal government, Emery maintained a Top-Secret clearance as a CIO, Chief Architect, & Director in various capacities with the White House, United States Congress, and the Department of Homeland Security. In a senior management role with the Department of Justice, he served as the CIO for the National Security Division, the liaison between the Attorney General and the Intelligence Community.

Chris Emery Speaking Topics

  • White House Usher: Stories from the Inside

    Chris Emery's presentations (typically 45-60 minutes) provide a highlighted summary of his published memoir, "White House Usher: Stories from the Inside," which chronicles the very unique and otherwise untold story of my working inside the White House directly for Presidents Reagan, Bush, and Clinton. Hired in 1986, he was only the 18th White House Usher since 1891.

    Overview of talking points:

    • Life & Work in The White House
    • U.S. Presidents
    • American History
    • Washington D.C. Mystery 'Whodunit' Novels

    This talk is not about political ideology and does not favor one president or their family over another. It's a great story about my experiences as an average American who was fortunate enough to have managed, for over eight years, the day-to-day operations of the White House Executive Residence, the home of the First Family.

    Former First Lady Barbara Bush wrote the foreword for his memoir, and Emery is grateful for the many overwhelmingly positive Amazon reviews the book has received. Emery has also authored two novels, titled "Who Killed the President?" and "Who Shot the Speaker?".
