Martha Johnson ushered in a new era at the U.S. General Services Administration on February 16 during a live town hall at GSA headquarters in Washington, DC, that was also webcast to agency employees nationwide.
During the event, Johnson challenged GSA’s work force to stay focused on key initiatives, such as greening the government and putting Americans back to work. She took several questions from the audience as well as answered emailed questions from employees around the country.
Johnson is GSA’s first permanent administrator in more than two years. No stranger to the agency, she served as GSA Chief of Staff from 1997 to 2001.
Johnson was sworn in remotely during a crippling winter storm, and her Agency-wide objectives will highlight talent, innovation, customer intimacy, and cost-effectiveness.
