NFFE National President Richard N. Brown’s Statement on Nomination of John Berry as Director of OPM


“The National Federation of Federal Employees strongly supports the nomination of John Berry as Director of the Office of Personnel Management. His stellar record of public service and employee relations make him an excellent choice for the position. Berry has a wealth of executive leadership experience from his time at the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the National Zoo. He has an intimate knowledge of the laws impacting pay in the federal workforce because he was one of the key figures in drafting the legislation that created the modern federal pay system. He also has a reputation of being very fair minded and considerate toward his employees. President Obama could not have chosen a more qualified candidate to lead the agency that manages the civil service. We applaud his choice.”
