Congratulations to Starfish Advisory Board Member William H. Pascol IV on his new position as the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Office of Financial Resources, Office of Finance and Accounting Services.
We are thrilled for William as he joins the Senior Executive Service with the federal government, a position that is the civilian equivalent of being a general or an admiral! We are so excited for him and his family as they embark on this wonderful new journey in Atlanta.
William was one of our original board members when we were established in 2018, and we're honored that he's continuing his work with us. He told us he's looking forward to expanding Starfish's footprint, and we are looking forward to seeing the amazing things he continues to do.
Again, congratulations, William! So very well deserved!
