GSA makes Winstead new PBS commissioner

The General Services Administration has tapped David Winstead as the agency's Public Buildings Service commissioner. Winstead replaces F. Joseph Moravec, who left the agency in July.

The Public Buildings Service is the real-estate arm of the federal government, and oversees an inventory of more than 345 million square feet of workspace for 1 million federal employees in 2,000 U.S. communities.

Winstead joins GSA after serving as a partner with Holland & Knight LLP, specializing in real estate, transportation, public law and government procurement.

Before that, he served as secretary of transportation in Maryland, as well as executive director of the Washington/Baltimore Regional Association, a private-sector economic development group.

Winstead earned a bachelor's degree in economics from Denison University, an M.B.A. from Columbia University and a law degree from Catholic University's Columbus Law School.
