ATLANTA—The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) recently appointed Thomas Meiron as regional commissioner for the Federal Acquisition Service in the agency’s Southeast Sunbelt Region.
As regional commissioner, Meiron leads a team of 175 public servants who provide supplies, personal property disposal, and acquisition support to federal agencies and the military representing more than $800 million in revenue.
“As the gatekeepers of federal acquisitions, we receive a great deal of trust from the American taxpayer as we work to ensure federal agencies have the tools and resources they need to operate efficiently,” said Meiron. “It’s truly a great responsibility, but the team GSA has here in the Southeast is definitely up to the challenge.”
After graduating from Illinois State University, Meiron began is GSA career nearly 30 years ago when he joined the agency’s Office of Congressional Affairs as a congressional liaison. Since that time, he has held several senior advisory and leadership roles for GSA’s procurement operations throughout Europe, Africa and Asia. Most recently, Meiron served as the deputy assistant commissioner in the GSA’s Office of Enterprise Strategy Management.
“We’re thrilled to have such a knowledgeable expert like Thomas join our team in Atlanta,” said GSA Regional Administrator Brian Stern. “He brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to the table that will go a long way to help guide GSA’s procurement and acquisitions efforts throughout the Southeast Sunbelt Region.”
The mission of the U.S. General Services Administration is to deliver value and savings in real estate, acquisition, technology and other mission-support services across the government. One of its four strategic objectives is to save taxpayer money through better management of federal real estate.
