2017 Fed 100

Federal 100: Tim Horne

 

Name: Tim Horne
Title: Acting Administrator
Agency/Company: General Services Administration

He coordinated preparations across the government, served as co-chairman of the Agency Transition Directors Council and ensured that all statutory requirements were met. The longtime GSA executive played a similar role in the transition between the Bush and Obama administrations, and the experience showed. Staffers from both campaigns, senior agency employees and White House officials all leaned heavily on Horne throughout 2016.
