More personnel changes at GSA

18F's Greg Godbout

Executive Director Greg Godbout is leaving GSA's 18F.

In an agency-wide message on March 11, General Services Administration Acting Administrator Denise Turner Roth announced two key changes in GSA's IT leadership.

Greg Godbout, the former presidential innovation fellow who serves as executive director of 18F, will be leaving GSA for another federal agency. As is often the case with startup tech ventures, Roth said, "there comes a time when the leadership who played key roles in the beginning will leave to create new ventures."

Aaron Snow, the group's principal deputy executive director and one of the first 18F team members, will take over as acting executive director, Roth said.

And in the office of the CIO, Roth announced, David Shive will become acting CIO when Sonny Hashmi departs for the private sector. "David has been a leading figure in almost every key GSA IT initiative and transformation for more than two years," Roth said, "and I look forward to working with him to continue to build on our legacy of IT excellence."
