GSA taps Rutherford, Fox for leadership positions

Stephen Perry, administrator of the General Services Administration, today named Boyd Rutherford to be the point man for changes to the Federal Supply Service and the Federal Technology Service.

Rutherford becomes the new assistant commissioner for the Performance Improvement Office and will remain in his current role as the associate administrator for GSA's Office of Enterprise Development.

Rutherford will work on diminishing overlapping tasks that was found between GSA's two most successful services. Accenture LLP of Chicago in May released a three-month study on FTS and FSS, reporting that some consolidation and realignment of services could be helpful, especially in sales and marketing.

He also will direct GSA's progress on President Bush's five Management Agenda items and the Government Performance and Results Act.

GSA last week also named Neal Fox to be the new assistant commissioner for Commercial Acquisition at FSS. He will be responsible for managing commercial service and product initiatives under the $16 billion program.

Before coming to GSA, Fox was the director of the Commercial IT Product Area Directorate at Gunter Annex-Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala., where he provided commercial products and services to department customers throughout the world.
