The U.S. Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) has appointed Jack Schreibman as its Director of Administration, effective December 31, 2023.
In this capacity, Mr. Schreibman will supervise RRB units that provide administrative and management support for the agency, including human resources, facility management, procurement, and public affairs. He will also serve on the RRB’s Executive Committee, which is responsible for day-to-day operations of the agency and making policy recommendations to the three-member Board.
At the time of his RRB appointment, Mr. Schreibman was the Associate Administrator for Administration at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), a position he had held since August 2017. A component of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the FMCSA is responsible for regulating and providing safety oversight of commercial motor vehicles, with the mission of reducing crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses. In that position, Mr. Schreibman was responsible for overseeing all administrative and management programs in support of the agency’s workforce and serving as principal advisor to the Administrator on such matters.
Altogether, he has over 15 years of service with DOT or its component agencies. From October 2016 to August 2017, he was Deputy Director for Acquisition and Financial Management/Grants Oversight in the Office of the Senior Procurement Executive, managing procurement of more than $6 billion in goods and services and over $50 billion in financial assistance programs.
Mr. Schreibman worked for more than 7 years at the U.S. Maritime Administration, serving as Deputy Associate Administrator for Administration from April 2011 to September 2016, and Deputy Director of the Office of Acquisitions from April 2009 to March 2011.
He was also a participant in the initial cohort of the White House Leadership Development Program from November 2015 to November 2016. This one-year program is designed to develop skills and networks that leaders need to deliver results on mission-critical priorities. As a Fellow on the Community Solutions Team, Mr. Schreibman worked on a governmentwide place-based initiative to improve access to government services and opportunities for individuals in disadvantaged areas, along with issues such as e-government and financial management.
His public service career work started as an original Americorps member in 1994, teaching literacy and math for two years to public school elementary students in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Mr. Schreibman graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in education (1997) and a Juris Doctor degree (2000). Mr. Schreibman currently resides in Manassas, Virginia, with his wife Marcie, who is also a federal employee, and their two daughters.
He replaces Dan Fadden, who is retiring after more than 40 years of service at the RRB.
