Leann Jost and Lou DiGeambeardino Named Project Executives
GSA is happy to introduce Leann Jost and Lou DiGeambeardino as the newest Project Executives in the Region’s South Service Center. As Project Executives, Leann and Lou are responsible for managing several Project Managers and overseeing requirements for development, project management, and service delivery to customers. Leann covers the Richmond territory; Lou covers West Virginia.
Leann graduated from Albright College with a degree in English. She recently received designation as a Facility Management Administrator (FMA) through BOMI International and also holds Federal Acquisition Certification for Program and Project Managers (FAC-P/PM) and FAC-Contracting Officer’s Representative (FAC-COR) certifications.
Leann began her GSA career in 2000 as a Building Management Specialist intern. During her tenure with GSA, Leann has served as a Building Manager, Communications Specialist, and Operations Manager. In 2011, she was promoted to Field Office Manager of the East Philadelphia Field Office, where she was responsible for 3.98 million square feet of inventory in Center City Philadelphia.
Most recently, Leann worked with GSA colleagues and several other Federal agencies to support the Papal Visit to Philadelphia. She coordinated activities at several federally owned and leased facilities in Center City Philadelphia, including access, potential impact to operations, and needed services before, during, and after the Papal visit.
“The most rewarding thing for me is to see how the work that we do at GSA directly and indirectly supports the missions of our customers and the public we all serve, and how it all comes together in our projects,” said Leann.
“I look forward to working with new clients and in new cities in this role.”
Lou DiGeambeardino graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics. He started his career as a Contract Specialist in 1991 with NAVFAC. In 2001 he came to GSA as a Contracting Officer and shortly thereafter served as an Operations Manager in the Delaware Valley Field Office. Lou joined the South Service Center in 2009 to work in Project Management, managing major customers including DOJ, IRS, SSA, CMS, VA and NOAA.
Throughout his GSA career, Lou has worked on several regional and national initiatives, including his work on the 2008 Presidential Transition team, his role as the Contracting Officer to award the national ePM contract, and his participation as the regional representative (and later as Contracting Officer) for a National Contact Center (NCC) operation capable of providing a centralized point to receive, dispatch, track status and report on service requests for our PBS tenants.
“I look forward to continuing to work in the West Virginia geography in my new role and am anxious to build on established relationships both internally and with our customer agencies,” stated Lou.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to help steer our organization and align with our core mission including providing the best quality services for the customers we serve.”
