The Senior Executives Association has named Bill Valdez, a former director at the Energy Department and senior adviser at the Office of Science and Technology Policy, as president of the Washington-based nonprofit that represents many senior-level federal executives.
Valdez joined SEA in 2000 and previously served as chair of the board of directors from 2011 through 2013, SEA said Tuesday.
“He upholds our core values of professional integrity and a strong commitment to public service and we are thrilled to have him once again in a leadership role within the organization,” said Board Chair Barbara Pabotoy.
Valdez spent more than two decades at DOE, where he held various director roles at the department’s Office of Economic Impact and Diversity, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and Office of Science before he retired from federal service in 2014.
Valdez also previously served as a senior vice president at Consultants International Group and principal of Deep Water Point.
He is also an adjunct faculty member at American University’s School of Public Affairs.
SEA advocates for the interests of career federal executives to both Congress and the White House as well as provides data and services to SEA members.
