Federal agency taps GW real estate expert to oversee D.C. region

GW’s senior property manager has been appointed to lead the General Services Administration’s operations in the D.C. region, the Washington Business Journal reported Thursday.

Scott Anderson, who has advised officials on real estate investment for the past seven years, became an administrator for GSA’s “National Capital Region” Tuesday. GSA provides basic support to government agencies including property management.

Anderson previously served in the George W. Bush administration as deputy assistant secretary for the Department of Education for three years, the Journal reported.

“His extensive career in the public sector will be value as we pursue efforts to reduce duplication, generate competition and increase agency transparency,” Emily Murphy, GSA’s top official, said of Anderson in a statement.

The GSA owns and leases 95.6 million rentable square feet of space in 190 federally owned buildings and 500 leased buildings in the D.C. region, including 70 historic buildings. The agency also manages buildings like the White House, the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center and the Hart-Dole-Inouye Federal Center.
