Press release from the issuing company
WASHINGTON--After 40 years of dedicated public service, Anthony J. “Tony” Zagami will retire from the U.S. Government Printing Office at the end of this year. Zagami has served as GPO's General Counsel since the early 1990s.
Prior to joining the agency, Zagami spent 25 years working for the U.S. Congress in various positions ranging from U.S. Senate Page in the mid 1960s to General Counsel to the Joint Committee on Printing, GPO's oversight Committee.
“It's been a great honor to have spent these past 40 years serving the American people, and I can think of no better way to end my Government career than helping to re-invent this venerable old agency we call the GPO,” Zagami said.
When notified of Zagami's upcoming retirement, Public Printer Bruce R. James, said, “GPO will miss Tony's wise and innovative counsel. He has proven instrumental in our plans to transform GPO, transitioning it from a 19th century print plant to a 21st century digital information enterprise. This agency is a better place today because of Tony's many years of dedicated and diligent service.”
Zagami is a graduate of the University of Maryland's School of Business and Public Administration, and the George Mason University School of Law. A native of the Nation's capital, Zagami plans to remain in the DC Metropolitan area after departing GPO.
