His expertise in Federal and state agency management and personnel operations was honed through service under four U.S. presidents, three governors and in support of five presidential transitions.

In 2017, he served as a member of the Presidential Rank Review Board, the body charged with evaluating and recommending U.S. Federal career Senior Executive Service managers for distinguished and meritorious performance recognition awards by the President and the White House.
