Public Printer Bill Boarman has named Davita Vance-Cooks as Chief of Staff for the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Vance-Cooks is Boarman’s principal advisor on overall management of the agency, responsible for formulation and coordination of all internal and external agency policies.

Vance-Cooks has held management positions at GPO for nearly seven years, most recently serving as managing director of publications and information sales business unit. In this position, Vance-Cooks led the team that is responsible for the sale of federal print and electronic information products to the public. Vance-Cooks oversaw the renovation of the agency's retail bookstore in Washington, D.C., launched an award winning government book blog, updated the centralized contact center, and led GPO's effort to partner with Google to sell federal publications in an e-book format through Google's eBookstore.

"Davita's leadership and experience in operations management, strategic planning, market research and knowledge of GPO makes her an indispensible asset to me and the agency," says Boarman. "I am honored she will be my chief of staff as the agency continues to upholdits historic mission of ‘Keeping America Informed’ on the three branches of the federal government."
