Senate confirms new GSA chief
The Senate on Aug. 5 confirmed Denise Turner Roth as administrator of the General Services Administration.
Roth, who was nominated for the post in May by President Obama, has been serving as acting administrator of the agency since Dan Tangherlini stepped down from the position in February. Roth joined GSA in March 2014 to become deputy administrator. Prior to that, she served as city manager of Greensboro, N.C.
Roth’s confirmation comes a week after her approval by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), ranking member of the committee, applauded the Senate vote.
