David Drabkin is moving to Northrop Grumman from his position as deputy chief acquisition officer and acting chief acquisition office at GSA. He will be the new director of acquisition policy for Northrop Grumman and will report to Larry Lanzillotta, the corporate vice president of customer relations.
According to Lanzilotta, “The extensive acquisition expertise David Drabkin brings from his work with the U.S. General Services Administration, the Defense Department and the Defense Logistics Agency is critical and will greatly benefit Northrop Grumman.”
At GSA, Drabkin led many acquisition-based movements, such as the Federal Procurement Data Center, the Federal Acquisition Institute, the Civilian Agency Acquisition Council, and the Catalog of Domestic Federal Assistance.
Prior to GSA, Drabkin held executive positions at the Defense Department, including the deputy program manager of a large Pentagon renovation program. Just last year, he was awarded the Presidential Meritorious Award for his public service.
