People on the Move

Emory Miller

Linda Massaro

After 36 years of federal service, Emory Miller is calling it quits. The General Services Administration's director of professional leadership will retire Jan. 3.

Miller said he is unsure what he will do next, but that 'the position must be creative and something I believe in.'

Miller started the CIO University and the Strategic and Tactical Advocates for Results program. He was instrumental in the Trail Boss program and now is working with an interagency group to push project management as an explicit federal career. He also is one of the leaders for GSA's SmartBuy initiative to create enterprise license deals for use governmentwide.

Miller began his career as a systems manager for the Army and worked as an acquisition official for the Housing and Urban Development Department for seven years before moving to the IRS as a program director for corporate systems. He joined GSA in 1996.

Miller also was the president of the Association for Federal Information Resources Management for two years and has been the conference director for the Interagency Resources Management Conference since 1997.

With her e-government program at the National Defense University thriving in its second year, Linda Massaro has decided to leave her fellowship post and retire from government after a 35-year federal career.

Massaro stepped down from her CIO position at the National Science Foundation two years ago to launch the university's E-Government Leadership Certificate Program. The first class of 150 students graduated last December.

Massaro will leave Oct. 3 to take a job as an account executive with Computer Sciences Corp.

She also has been a deputy assistant secretary for personnel at the State Department. She began her federal career as a structural engineer working primarily on submarine research and design for the Naval Ship R&D Center in Portsmouth, Va.

The Office of Management and Budget has filled two of three vacant e-government project portfolio manager jobs.

Paul Mamo is on detail from the IRS for six months to manage the government-to-citizen Quicksilver projects. He takes over the post left vacant last month when Jonathan Womer accepted another job within OMB.

Tim Young is the new manager of the internal efficiency and effectiveness portfolio. He re-places Stephen Galvan, who became CIO of the Small Business Administration in June.
