Senior Executives Honored at Presidential Distinguished Rank Awards

Fifty-four senior executives were honored at the 2011 Presidential Distinguished Rank Awards Banquet Thursday night in Washington, D.C.

The 27th annual banquet, hosted by the Senior Executives Association, recognized members of the Senior Executive Service for their leadership and efforts to help save the government millions, and in some cases, billions of dollars. Altogether, the fifty-hour awardees saved or helped the government avoid spending $36 billion.

 

“Cabinet people may be caretakers of the agencies, but you are the heart and soul,” said Karen Mills, administrator for the Small Business Administration and the guest speaker at the awards dinner. “You provide continuity and sage counsel, and you are mentors and unpaid office historians.”

Among those recognized Thursday night were Deborah Taylor, whose efforts to improve the financial operations of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services led to the return of $850 million to the Medicare Trust Funds, and Steve Butler, who helped the Air Force Material Command avoid spending $1 billion by improving high-risk aircraft maintenance.

Winners of the Distinguished Rank award receive a lump-sum payment of 35 percent of their annual basic pay rate, while Meritorious Rank winners receive 20 percent of their annual basic pay rate. All recipients receive a framed certificate signed by the president.

“Tonight’s award is a small bit of gratitude for all you do,” Mills said. “Thank you from the administration. These are the top honors and you are all doing remarkable work in the administration.”

A complete list of the winners is available here.
