WASHINGTON — The U.S. General Services Administration today announced the appointment of Susan Damour to serve as the Regional Administrator for GSA’s Rocky Mountain Region, effective October 26, 2009.
As the Rocky Mountain Regional Administrator, Damour will oversee all of GSA’s activities in Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming; including management of federal real estate and information technology. She will be responsible for an inventory of 615 government-owned buildings which house nearly 50,000 federal employees.
Damour’s experience in sustainability policy makes her uniquely qualified to lead the Rocky Mountain Region as GSA carries out green building projects across the country through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Damour served as Regional Administrator from 1998 to 2001, at which time she helped coordinate the then-largest ever wind energy purchase by federal agencies to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Earth Day. Before coming back to GSA, she most recently served as the Director of Outreach for the Rocky Mountain Climate Organization.
Damour previously served as Senior Vice President of Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood, Vice President of the Bell Policy Center in Denver, and District Director for Congressman David Skaggs in Westminster, CO.
Damour received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Arts from Colorado Woman’s College and her Master of Business Administration from the Keller Management School of Business in Chicago, IL.
