Dan Tangherlini, acting administrator of the General Services Administration, has appointed Michael Casella as the agency’s new chief financial officer, according to a Feb. 13 blog post.
Casella managed the development and humanitarian assistance budget at USAID and has worked at the Office of Management and Budget and the Treasury Department.
“This experience promises to provide us with significant insights into the needs of our customers,” Tangherlini said.
The General Services Administration saw the resignation or firing of top leadership in April after an inspector general report detailed nearly $823,000 in wasteful spending at a 2010 conference in Las Vegas.
Tangherlini said Casella is part of a new team that will help the agency refocus on customer service and saving agencies money.
