GSA appoints deputy chief of staff

The General Services Administration has selected Kimberly A. Douglass to be its new deputy chief of staff within the agency's Office of the Administrator.

Douglass' appointment was effective Sept. 17.

Before accepting the GSA post, Douglass spent the previous five years working for the White House Management Office, where she most recently held the title of director, overseeing operations and logistical support services for staff members. Douglass also managed the White House budget and additional funds within the Executive Office of the President.

'I'm thrilled Kimberly will be joining us at the GSA. Her work at the White House has made her a standout in the Bush administration, and I look forward to her joining our staff,' said Lurita Doan, GSA administrator.

Prior to the White House Management Office, Douglass served as director of corporate services for Greater Philadelphia First, a civic and business leadership organization of chief executives. As director, Douglass started a new-member recruitment initiative and created a member events program.

Douglass graduated from Villanova University with a bachelor's degree in business administration.
