PBS Regional Commissioner
The Heartland Region welcomed Allison Azevedo as the new Public Buildings Service regional commissioner in October 2014.
Allison, a native of Lake Park, Iowa, has served as the Great Lakes (Region 5) regional commissioner since July 2011. In that role she led the region to top-level performance. Most recently and notably, she led the execution of a $825 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act program, and nearly $100 million in energy savings performance contract awards. Azevedo also guided innovative solutions that dramatically reduced operating and maintenance costs in our federal assets, and assisted federal agencies with major right-sizing initiatives to help reduce costs and achieve their goals.
Azevedo joined GSA in 1988 as a space planner in the former Realty Services Division in Region 5. During her GSA career, she has worked in all business lines in PBS, and has performed director roles for Leasing, Client Solutions, and Facilities Management Divisions. Before being selected as a senior executive, she led the national PBS implementation of global project management in 2010.
Allison earned her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from the University of Missouri in 1987, and she received the Junior Citation of Merit Alumni award from MU in 1999. She is a graduate of GSA’s 2003 Advanced Leadership Development Program.
