WASHINGTON – Today, President Obama announced he would nominate Denise Turner Roth as the new Administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA).
President Obama said:
“As Acting Administrator and Deputy Administrator, Denise led the General Services Administration to become more efficient, innovative and effective. Denise is a capable leader whose experiences in management will serve our nation well. I thank Denise for agreeing to continue her public service and look forward to working with her in this important position.”
Just over one year ago, Roth assumed the role of Deputy Administrator at GSA, providing the organizational leadership to improve performance throughout the agency. Roth helped eliminate the broad duplication of administrative services by consolidating the agency’s IT, HR, Administrative and Financial functions, helping to build a stronger and more efficient GSA while saving taxpayers $200 million in the next eight years.
As head of GSA, Roth will continue to cultivate the agency’s culture of continuous evaluation and improvement to deliver the greatest possible value to government and the American people.
