As a part of the 2010 Johnson & Strachan Distinguished Speaker’s Series, the School of Management will present David M. Walker, president and CEO of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, on Monday, Nov. 8, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

In his talk, which will be presented at the Mason Inn, Walker will discuss current national debt issues and federal deficit policies and procedures.

Prior to assuming his position with the Peterson Foundation in 2008, Walker served as the seventh comptroller general of the United States and head of the U.S. Government Accountability Office  for nearly 10 years.

This was one of Walker’s three presidential appointments by three different presidents during his 15 years of federal service. Walker also has more than 20 years of private sector experience, including approximately 10 years as a partner and global managing director of human capital services for Arthur Andersen LLP.
