The Partnership – a nonprofit whose mission is to revitalize the federal government – announced April 21 that it had elected the following four new board members: Adm. Thad Allen (Ret.), former commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard; Tom Davis, director of federal government affairs at Deloitte and a seven-term congressman from Virginia; Lloyd Howell, executive vice president of Booz Allen Hamilton; and Peter Orszag, vice chairman of global banking at Citigroup, Inc. and former director of the Office of Management and Budget.

The new members will all serve initial three-year terms on the board.
