SUBJECT Key Personnel Announcement
Upon the upcoming retirement of Teresa Washington, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Marcus Lea to the Senior Executive Service (SES) position of Director, Office of Human Capital (OHC). As OHC Director, Mr. Lea will be responsible for the entire scope of the Center's workforce strategy and planning, organization and leadership development, academic affairs, training and incentives, federal labor relations, and employee services and operations.
Appointed to the SES in January 2015, Mr. Lea comes to Marshall from the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), where he serves as Director of Human Capital Management. He brings with him over 16 years of experience in federal human capital management, including human capital policy development and administration, recruitment, outreach, employee and management relations, staffing and classification, compensation and benefits, executive resources, performance management, awards and incentives, training and career development, and strategic workforce analysis and planning.
Prior to joining the NNSA, Mr. Lea served as Deputy of the Office of Human Resources and as Director for Headquarters Human Resources Operations within the Department of Energy (DOE). Before joining the DOE, Mr. Lea served as the Civilian Personnel Officer for the Air Force District of Washington. He began his career as an Allowances and Differentials Analyst for the U.S. Department of State and served in progressively responsible leadership roles spanning all human resources disciplines for the Office of Personnel Management, the Air Force Materiel Command, the U.S. Air Force, the Defense Information Systems Agency, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
A native of Durham, North Carolina, Mr. Lea earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Morehouse College and a Master's Degree in Public Administration from North Carolina Central University. He and his wife, Dr. Djuana Lea, have three children and currently reside in Haymarket, Virginia.
Please join me in welcoming Mr. Lea to the Marshall family when he comes onboard after the first of the New Year. I know I can count on you to give him your full cooperation and support as he transitions to his new role.
