Michael J. Robertson will be the new chief of staff at GSA. He is moving from his position as Associate Administrator of Governmentwide Policy and Chief Acquisition Officer, which he has held since August 2009.
Before working at GSA, Robertson worked as the deputy working group lead for the Energy and Environment Agency Review Team on the Obama-Biden Transition Project, as well as the Director of Congressional Affairs on the Obama for America presidential campaign. Even prior that that, Robertson worked as Obamaâs Legislative Coordinator and Deputy to the Chief Counsel when Obama was Senator.
According to GovernmentExecutive, GSA Administrator Martha Johnson said, Robertsonâs âtalent and commitment to GSA will assure our strong focus on our customers, align us with the presidentâs priorities, and ensure that we find creative and collaborative ways to continue to be a leader across government.â
Robertson will move into his new role on May 3, 2010. He will be the successor to Danielle Germain, who stepped down from GSAâs Chief of Staff this past January.
