The General Services Administration named Karl O. Krumbholz the new director of network services programs within the Federal Acquisition Service’s Office of Integrated Technology Services.

As head of the network services office, based in Fairfax, Va., Krumbholz will help provide strategic, operational, technical, and acquisition leadership for an organization that delivers $1.5 billion in telecommunications services to 135 government agencies in 190 countries.

The new position brings together GSA’s legacy long distance and local services programs in a manner that is intended to reflect the integrated network-enabled government of the future, according to GSA.

John Johnson, assistant FAS commissioner, said Krumbholz has been acting in this role for almost a year and during that time has provided leadership and oversight for the award of the Networx, SATCOM II and the federal relay service contracts.

"He is well-positioned to help lead the federal telecommunications community through the challenges of transition to these new programs," Johnson said.

Previously, Krumbholz served as the deputy assistant commissioner for GSA’s Office of Service Development and Delivery in the legacy Federal Technology Service. In that role he was responsible for managing the FTS2001 and crossover federal telecommunications programs as well as the development activities that defined the next generation of GSA offerings.

Krumbholz has a bachelor’s degree in management from the U.S. Naval Academy, a master’s degree in aeronautical engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School and a master’s degree in business administration from George Washington University.
