GSA names Brasseux deputy administrator
Brasseux has served as deputy commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) since May 30, 2007, and briefly assumed the role of acting FAS commissioner when Williams became GSA’s acting administrator on Aug. 30. As FAS acting commissioner, Brasseux leads the delivery of approximately $48 billion of products and services to federal customers and oversees 4,000 FAS employees.
“The leadership skills, knowledge and energy that Barney has demonstrated as deputy commissioner and acting commissioner of FAS give me great confidence in his ability to help me lead GSA in this role,” Williams said. “GSA is fortunate to have Barney, a committed public servant, serve in this position on a permanent basis as we head into a presidential transition.”
Brasseux has served GSA since 1993 in a continuing progression of senior leadership positions, including assistant commissioner for travel, motor vehicle and card services as well as assistant commissioner for vehicle acquisition and leasing services. In addition, he previously served as chief of staff for GSA’s former Federal Supply Service.
