President Barack Obama plans to nominate Dan Tangherlini, acting chief of the General Services Administration since April 2012, to lead the agency as administrator on a full-time basis.
“I want to thank Dan for his leadership over the past year and for agreeing to continue serving in the administration,” Obama said in a White House statement released Wednesday.
Tangherlini joined GSA from the Treasury Department, where he served as chief financial officer starting in 2009 and as assistant management secretary from 2009 to 2012.
Before the Treasury, he served as city administrator and deputy mayor for the District of Columbia for three years and as interim general manager for Metro in 2006.
From 2000 to 2006, he served as director of D.C.’s Transportation Department and the previous two years as CFO of the city’s police department.
