CHICAGO DEVELOPER JULIA STASCH NAMED DEPUTY ADMINISTRATOR AT GSA

 WASHINGTON, May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Julia M. Stasch, president and chief operating officer of Stein & Company, was named deputy administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) by President Clinton late yesterday. She will join administrator-designate and former Western Digital CEO Roger Johnson at the head of the agency.
 "Julia Stasch is exactly the type of aggressive and innovative businessperson this administration needs as it seeks to reinvent the way government works," the president said. "I am confident Julia will work well with Roger Johnson to ensure economy and efficiency are standard rule at the new GSA."
 Stein & Company, a Chicago-based real estate firm, has been recognized for developing and managing distinctive properties in the Chicago area -- including more than 6.7 million square feet of commercial developments -- and for its wide range of professional real estate services provided to public- and private-sector clients.
 As the number two official at GSA, Stasch will oversee an annual budget of $10.4 billion. The 20,000-employee central management agency sets federal policy in the areas of supply and service procurement, property management, telecommunications and automated data processing.
 GSA also manages government-wide operations in building construction, leasing and management, motor vehicle and travel management and property disposal. The GSA real estate portfolio of 160 million square feet of owned and leased workspace houses 1 million federal employees nationwide.
 Stasch, who joined Stein & Company in 1976, is a nationally recognized conceptor of Chicago's most aggressive business development strategies for minorities and women. Her goals on Stein construction projects resulted in the hiring of about three times as many women as the industry average.
 She also has provided industry leadership to produce innovative support of minority economic development. For its outstanding results, Stein & Company received in 1989 the Small Business Administration's first National Corporate Award to a real estate developer, and the firm was one of nine companies nationwide to receive a 1990 Exemplary Voluntary Efforts award from the U.S. Department of Labor.
 Additional honors have been accorded to the firm by Black Contractors United, the Hispanic American Construction Industry Association and the Chicago Development Corporation.
 Stasch has been profiled in national publications, including Fortune, Nation's Business, Working Woman and Business Week magazines and was on Business Week's list of the country's "50 Top Women in Business" for 1992.
 The Business Enterprise Trust, an independent, national organization based at Stanford University, which supports business social activism, honored Stasch in 1993 with an award for acts of social vision and moral leadership in U.S. business.
 Stasch, who is actively involved in a wide range of industry and civic organizations, is a summa cum laude graduate of Loyola University in Chicago, and she has a master's degree from the University of Illinois.
