Happy Holidays and Farewell

Greetings, PACRIM AAS Community and Friends,

As many of you may have heard, I am retiring from GSA, effective 31 December 2020.  It has been an interesting journey; moreover, this path, with all its twists and turns, has given me the opportunity to meet and become close to several industry partners.  I would like to convey my appreciation for all the support that you have given me through the years as Acting Regional Commissioner, Deputy Regional Commissioner, Acquisition Oversight Executive, Acting AAS Director, and my final chapter as Director of the Customer and Engagement Stakeholder Engagement (CASE) Division.  

I am thrilled that we have Ms. B.J. Eldien continue her fine work as Director of the PACRIM AAS (Region 9) Division/CSC (Client Support Center) and Mr. Joel Fada as the new Deputy Director.  They, along with the fine work of Ms. Renee Hicks, Contracting Division, make a formidable team in providing assisted acquisition support and solutions to our various federal customers.  

Ms. Eldien and Mr. Fada inauguated a new PACRIM AAS Website last Friday at an industry forum, which can be found at the following: 


They and their teams remain inspired, engaged, customer-focused, and are reaching out to industry to continue the successes they have made within the AAS portfolio.  


While I am not sure who will be taking over this Interact site, or it may be taken down given the robustness of the new website, I had a great time blogging about our R9 AAS adventures.  

Stay tuned.  

Take care everyone and have a wonderful and safe holiday season.  As I embark upon my next chapter in life, I will reflect on the great memories we shared.  I hope to see you all down the road.
