People on the Move

Marguerite R. Moccia

Marguerite R. Moccia, formerly CIO of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, has become the agency's chief financial officer and assistant director for management, the Justice Department agency said.

Before becoming CIO, Moccia was the agency's deputy CFO, and will succeed Bill Earle in the CFO slot. She has worked as ATF's CIO since April 2002. Moccia has overseen the agency's seat management project, which provides different systems to ATF's employees depending on their needs.

The General Services Administration's Federal Technology Service has named James A. Williams as its deputy commissioner.

He replaces Charlie Self, who retired in May 2003. Williams, whose first official day was June 24, has been acting deputy since October 2003.

'Jim brings a wide range of government experience and expertise to the job,' said FTS commissioner Sandra Bates in a statement. 'As acting deputy commissioner, he has acquired a good understanding of our business lines very quickly and has made significant contributions to our organization in the relatively short time he has been with us.' He serves as a senior adviser to Bates and chief operating officer for all FTS programs.

He joined GSA as deputy regional administrator in 1986.

The General Services Administration recently established the post of chief acquisition officer and named Karl H. Reichelt to hold the position on an interim basis.

Reichelt also is the agency's chief of staff.

'Karl's leadership, management skills and commitment to improving our acquisition activities is just what is needed to get this new office off to a successful start,' GSA administrator Stephen A. Perry said.

Reichelt was appointed chief of staff in January after two years as GSA's regional administrator for the Northeast and Caribbean Region.

Peter Fonash, chief of the technology programs division of the National Communications System, is set to become the acting director and deputy manager of the agency following the resignation of Brenton C. 'Brent' Greene this month.

Greene, who had held the job since April 2001, will join Lucent Technologies as vice president for government relations. He was responsible for national security and emergency telecommunications for the Executive Office of the President.
