Press release from the issuing company
WASHINGTON--The U.S. Government Printing Office has selected information leader Thomas (TC) Evans to oversee the implementation of the agency's strategic vision.
“We have searched the GPO's executive ranks to find just the right person to help propel the implementation of strategic initiatives,” said Bob Tapella, Chief of Staff. “TC's insight and deep understanding of the information dissemination field will ensure the agency keeps a primary focus on keeping the public informed.”
Evans selection as Assistant Chief of Staff for Strategic Initiatives will be effective October 1. Evans has been serving as Deputy Superintendent of Documents for the last two years, holding the second highest-ranking position in GPO's information dissemination division.
“I have had the opportunity to work closely with our depository library partners and I look forward to ensuring our strategic initiatives center around public information dissemination across all areas of GPO's operations,” said Evans.
Evans began his GPO career in 1981 as a Supply Systems Analyst in the Superintendent of Documents Technical Support Group. He attended classes at nights and on the weekends to earn an MBA from Marymount University on his own initiative. He became a manager in 1988, the same year he completed his degree. Since then, he has held a variety of leadership positions, most recently as Deputy Managing Director of Information Dissemination.
A Strategic Vision for the 21st Century outlines the GPO's plans to transform from a 19th century, heavy-metal printing operation into a 21st century digital information factory. The GPO's strategic vision calls for the reorganization of the agency around six core lines of business. Central to GPO's plans is relocating its existing building complex to new facilities, sized and equipped for its digital future.
