WASHINGTON – The nonpartisan, nonprofit Partnership for Public Service today announced that veteran CIA official Meroe Park has been named executive vice president. In this role, Park will oversee the organization’s programs and its work with federal agencies.

“Meroe Park brings to the Partnership for Public Service a deep understanding of what it takes to modernize and transform a federal agency,” said Max Stier, the organization’s president and CEO. “Meroe’s significant experience developed through her long and successful career at the CIA makes her the ideal fit for this new leadership position, and we are thrilled she has joined our team.”

The Partnership has built a robust series of programs to improve our federal government’s leadership capacity, management and operations, and recruiting and hiring efforts in pursuit of its mission to make the government more effective. Additionally, the Partnership’s wide-ranging research on government reform issues has provided sound analysis and recommendations on the current challenges facing the federal workforce and government structures. These separate program initiatives will be integrated for the first time, and Park will lead them.

“As a public servant of nearly 30 years, I have found that the Partnership for Public Service is another form of public service and is a place where I can continue to work with people who are committed to a meaningful mission,” said Park. “Serving the American people in this new capacity is an honor and I look forward to enabling the successes of our dedicated and hard-working federal workforce.”

Park served in a number of critical operational and strategic roles during her nearly three decades at the CIA, culminating in her leadership position as the agency’s top civil service official. During her tenure, Park also was the agency’s executive director and chief operating officer, the chief of human resources, the director of corporate resources for analysis and a senior mission support officer for locations in Eurasia and Western Europe.

During the past 17 years, the Partnership has been dedicated to making the federal government more effective for the American people. We work across administrations to help transform the way government operates by increasing collaboration, accountability, efficiency and innovation. Visit to learn more.
