Renee Johnson, a more than 25-year civil service veteran, has been elected as national president of the Federal Managers Association.
“I will stand strong on behalf of federal managers and make sure the highest levels of government hear not only their concerns, but also their ideas for streamlining efforts and cutting costs where we can without hurting agencies’ missions,” Johnson said Thursday.
FMA represents approximately 200,000 federal managers, supervisors and executives for their interests to the White House and Congress.
Johnson has directed the association’s Region 2 office over the past two years and also currently serves as component program deputy integrated product team lead at the Naval Air Systems Command’s Fleet Readiness Center-East in Cherry Point, North Carolina.
She acts as the center’s liaison with multiple external clients on aircraft component acquisition programs that cost more than $300 million a year.
She also previously led FMA Chapter 21 as president and was awarded the association’s Gil Guidry Award in 2012 in recognition of her leadership at the chapter.
