Aaron Snow, executive director of the General Services Administration‘s 18F organization, will step down on Oct. 13 and hold an advisory role to support the incoming Technology Transformation Service commissioner, Federal News Radio reported Friday.

Jason Miller writes Dave Zvenyach, 18F acquisition management director, will serve as interim 18F head to replace Snow, who also holds the TTS deputy commissioner position.

“When it comes to 18F, perhaps no one has been more instrumental in establishing this organization than Aaron Snow,” GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth said in an email to staff that Federal News Radio has obtained.

“One of the first Presidential Innovation Fellows, Aaron was one of the key contributors in building on this successful program to create 18F.”

The report said Snow entered government for a one-year term under the Presidential Innovation Fellows program before he received a two-year extension through the Office of Personnel Management‘s excepted hiring authority.

He has also served in the voter protection team for Barack Obama’s presidential and reelection campaigns.
