Roth tapped to head GSA

Denise Turner Roth.

Denise Turner Roth joined GSA as deputy administrator in 2014.

President Barack Obama intends to make Denise Turner Roth's job as acting head of the General Services Administration into a more permanent one.

The president said in a May 21 announcement that he will nominate GSA's acting administrator to fill the position full time.

“As acting administrator and deputy administrator, Denise led the General Services Administration to become more efficient, innovative and effective," said the president.

Roth stepped into the acting administrator position after Dan Tangherlini left the agency in February to become chief operating officer at the Washington-area real estate investment firm Artemis Real Estate Partners.

In assuming the acting administrator position, Roth told FCW that she sees her mission as perpetuating the successes her predecessor's strategies yielded.

Before she came to GSA in 2014 to be deputy administrator, she was city manager in Greensboro, N.C. Before that, she had worked on Capitol Hill and in local D.C. government.
