Jerome Fletcher comes to DGS with extensive experience in all aspects of managing local city government operations. Mr. Fletcher served as the Associate Administrator for the Office of Small Business Utilization (OSBU) at the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) as a Presidential Appointee under the Obama Administration. Prior to this role, he served as the Special Assistant to the City Manager & Manager of the Office of Civic & Community Engagement in the City of Alexandria, VA and before that as the Assistant to the Finance Director and City Manager in the City of Greensboro, NC.
While he has extensive experience in local government, the challenge to lead at the federal level really drew him to the job at GSA. His goals at GSA were to expand opportunities for small businesses, develop new talent within the small business and acquisition workforce, and use technology to increase small business participation in government contracting.
Mr. Fletcher received his Bachelor of Science in Accounting from North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro and a Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Phoenix.
