OPM director appoints new chief of staff, executive director

Office of Personnel Management Director Linda Springer filled five vacancies within the agency earlier this week, including the appointment of a new chief of staff and executive director.

Springer named Tricia Hollis as chief of staff and director of external affairs, Robert Batson III as executive director and senior counselor, Susan Bryant as director of OPM's Office of Communications and Public Liaison, Susan Marshall as director of the agency's Congressional Relations Office, and Nancy Kichak as associate director for strategic human resources policy.

Hollis already served as acting chief of staff and joined OPM in early 2004 as special assistant to the agency's deputy director.

Batson joins OPM after a stint as counselor to the controller at the Office of Management and Budget, where he provided guidance on federal financial management and reporting issues.

Marshall worked at the General Services Administration as senior policy adviser to GSA's Office of Performance and Improvement. She has also served as a staffer on the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs.
