Friday, August 18, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

WASHINGTON -- Public Printer Bruce James announced the appointment of new leaders for two important posts at the U.S. Government Printing Office. Inspector General Greg Brower will become General Counsel. Deputy Inspector General, Tony Ogden, has been named Acting Inspector General. Both moves are effective October 1, 2006. “Greg and Tony have been at GPO for several years and are familiar with the internal agency processes as well as the importance of working with our external customers,” said Public Printer Bruce James. “When this opportunity presented itself we first looked within our agency for qualified and experienced leaders who would understand our mission and would keep the GPO moving forward.” Brower will take over from the longest serving GPO General Counsel in agency history. Anthony Zagami, who announced his retirement last month, was appointed General Counsel in 1990. Brower became Inspector General in 2004. Prior to his work at GPO, Brower served at the U.S. Department of Justice as Legislative Counsel in the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys. As a practicing attorney, he has more than 12 years of experience in civil litigation and administrative law. Brower is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley and The George Washington University Law School. “I am honored to follow in the footsteps of Tony Zagami. I look forward to representing GPO as the agency continues its transformation to a digital information platform,” said Brower. “I also feel confident that the Office of Inspector General will continue to keep the Public Printer and Congress informed about issues relating to GPO operations under the leadership of Tony Ogden.” Ogden has been with the GPO’s Office of Inspector General for more than two years. He currently serves as the senior legal and policy advisor to the Inspector General. Prior to joining GPO, Ogden was the Litigation and Compliance Counsel for the Tobacco Project at the National Association of Attorneys General. Ogden is a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Colorado. Ogden has also worked as an attorney in private practice, focusing primarily on civil litigation and workers' compensation matters. He is a graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Denver College of Law. "Under Greg's leadership, the Inspector General's Office has developed an excellent work plan and strategy, and has achieved very high standards. As Acting Inspector General, I will strive to advance these standards and will continue to serve the needs of GPO and Congress", said Ogden." Zagami, who was named General Counsel Emeritus of the agency, will serve as special counsel to the Public Printer until his planned retirement in January 2007.
