Edward DeSeve Named Obama Adviser
President Obama and Vice President Biden have tapped Edward DeSeve to serve as a special adviser on the implementation of the economic stimulus package. His resume reads like the ultimate "revolving door" bureaucrat and he was recently described to The Eye as a "super-talented guy" by Max Stier of the Partnership for Public Service. He will work with Biden to oversee the administration's distribution and oversight of stimulus funds.
DeSeve served as deputy director of OMB in the late 1990s, coordinating the federal government's preparations for the Y2K computer scare. He also served as OMB's controller and CFO at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Most recently, he has served as chairman of Strategies and Solution LLP, a public- and private-sector consulting firm. Before that, he spent eight years as a professor at the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy and as a senior fellow at James MacGregor Burns Academy of Leadership. He's currently a senior lecturer at the Fels Institute for Government of the University of Pennsylvania.
Don't forget his stints at KPMG Peat Marwick and Merrill Lynch Capital Markets as well. Oh, and he established the consulting firm Public Financial Management Incorporated. He's a published expert on the federal budget, financial management, and information technology and he graduated from Cornell University and the University of Pennsylvania.
"His management efforts inside the Executive Office of the President will complement the oversight work led by the independent Accountability and Transparency Board, chaired by Earl Devaney," according to a White House release.
