May 27, 2015
SAN FRANCISCO – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) today announced the appointment of Andrew McMahon to serve as the Regional Administrator of the agency’s Pacific Rim Region. As the Pacific Rim Regional Administrator, McMahon will join the region’s 885 employees in meeting the agency’s mission to deliver the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services to government and the American people.
From GSA Acting Administrator Denise Turner Roth:
“Andrew's experience working across the agency and government will serve as an important addition to meeting the region's real estate and acquisition goals. In addition, as GSA enhances its IT offerings across government, Andrew’s technological expertise and industry relationships will help the region capitalize on its proximity to Silicon Valley. As a result of his experience at both GSA and OMB, Andrew has a wealth of experience working with many different agencies to reform government operations and save taxpayer dollars. This type of experience is essential for the regional administrator position. I welcome Andrew to the leadership team, and look forward to working with him in his new role.”
From Todd Park, White House Technology Advisor and former U.S. Chief Technology Officer:
“Andrew is incredibly well-suited to lead this GSA region and help the federal government better leverage the talent and ideas of innovators here in the Bay Area. Through the remarkable work he has done to help create and drive the success of 18F, he has been instrumental to our work to change how government delivers digital services for the better. I very much look forward to continuing to work with him on this mission in his new role.”
For two years, McMahon served the GSA Administrator as the Senior Advisor for Technology. In this position, he has played a vital role in developing GSA’s technology policies and delivering the agency’s digital services. One of the most recent projects he worked on was the construction and launch of 18F. In addition to his new role as Pacific Rim Regional Administrator, he will continue to serve the agency as the Senior Advisor for Technology, building and supporting 18F and other GSA digital service initiatives.
Prior to joining GSA, McMahon was a Policy Analyst at the White House Office of Management and Budget. In this position, he managed major policy initiatives throughout the federal government, including the PortfolioStat initiative, which drove over $2 billion in IT service cost reductions, and the 25 Point Implementation Plan to Reform Federal IT Management.
McMahon received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Boston College and a Master of Public Policy degree from the Irving B. Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago.
