Bethel to lead GSA office

The General Services Administration has tapped David Bethel as its new associate administrator of the Office of Citizen Services and Communications.

Bethel replaces Mary Joy Pizzella, who left the position last month to pursue private sector opportunities.

OCSC is closely aligned with the President's Management Agenda, an initiative designed to spur consolidation and promote the expansion of E-Government programs throughout the government.

The office also serves as GSA's chief liaison with the public, including the media.

'I am confident, as GSA moves forward to face new challenges, David's extensive expertise and depth of commitment will prove to be valuable assets,' GSA administrator Lurita Doan said.

Prior to his appointment, Bethel served as deputy associate administrator of communications with OCSC.
