Martha Johnson is taking more action at the General Services Administration.
A day after she rearranged the deck chairs to put more emphasis on green building programs, the newly confirmed GSA administrator filled three political posts.
Johnson named permanent appointees to head three of GSA’s regional offices:
- Jason Klumb as regional administrator of the Heartland Region, which includes Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. Klumb, who at age 24 was one of the youngest elected leaders in the Missouri House of Representatives, also is a major in the Army National Guard Judge Advocate General Corps.
- George Northcroft as regional administrator of the Northwest Region, which covers Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Northcroft most recently headed up economic development and business relations for Seattle and the rest of Washington’s King County, which is the 14th most populous county in the nation.
- Shyam Reddy as regional administrator of the Southeast Region, which encompasses Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Reddy was a partner at the Atlanta law firm Kilpatrick Stockton, where he led negotiations involving complex financial, employment, tax, and structuring issues.
Today’s announcements bring the number of permanent regional administrators to five; Johnson has six more posts to fill.
