GSA Names New Public Buildings Service Chief

The General Services Administration's Public Buildings Service has a new chief. David L. Winstead, former secretary of the Maryland Department of Transportation, was named commissioner of PBS in October. He will oversee one of the largest federal building programs, with 2005 appropriations of $1.7 billion for design, construction and renovation of federal courthouses, border stations and other facilities.

 Winstead came to GSA from the law firm Holland & Knight, where he was a partner in the real estate and public law departments. He headed Maryland's DOT from 1995 to 1998, and also had been executive director of the Washington/Baltimore Regional Association, a local business group. Winstead replaced F. Joseph Moravec, who left GSA August 1 after four years as PBS commissioner.
