GSA names 3 regional administrators

The General Services Administration today announced three new regional administrators:

George Northcroft is the new regional administrator of GSA’s Northwest Region. Northcroft will oversee all of GSA’s operations in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. He most recently was director of business relations and economic development for King County in Washington state.

Shyam Reddy was named regional administrator of the agency's Southeast Region and starts the job March 29. Reddy will oversee all of GSA’s operations in southern states from Kentucky to Florida. Reddy most recently worked as a partner at Kilpatrick Stockton, a law firm in Atlanta.

Jason Klumb was named regional administrator of GSA’s Heartland Region and begins Feb. 24. Klumb will oversee all of the agency's operations in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. Klumb is a major in the Army National Guard Judge Advocate General Corps, and recently returned to private practice after a year's deployment to Kosovo as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.

I noticed that the only one of the administrators you identify by gender was George Northcroft, who has an "obviously male" name. As our culture and the names of people in it become more diverse, we occasionally require guideposts - such as gender clues in text like this - to help us avoid unnecessary social gaffes. I have innocently addressed male contracting officers as "Ms. So-and-So" because I was lacking such guideposts. I suspect some of your readers will be contacting these new administrators before meeting them in person and would like to avoid making the same type of mistake I made. It wouldn't take much to remedy this situation, and I dare say it would not be politically incorrect to do so.
