The Partnership for Public Service is adding some political heft to its board of directors.
Retired U.S. Coast Guard commandant Thad Allen , former Office of Management and Budget director Peter R. Orszag and former representative Tom Davis (R-Va.) are joining the nonpartisan organization’s board of directors, along with Lloyd Howell, a vice president at government contracting giant Booz Allen Hamilton.
The nonpartisan organization, dedicated to promoting public service and careers with the federal government, also maintains a content partnership with The Washington Post.
It recently hired Patricia Nicklin as its new executive vice president and chief operating officer. She previously served as managing director of Share Our Strength, an anti-hunger organization.
