Statement of Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin on Acting Deputy Secretary

 

We welcome Mr. Scott Blackburn, to the role of Acting Deputy Secretary for the Department of Veterans Affairs, effective February 26, 2017. He is currently the Executive Director, MyVA Taskforce. Scott is a strong advocate for our Veterans and VA employees.

            In 2014, Scott was inspired by the call to action and joined VA to lead us in our transformation.  As an Operation Enduring Freedom Veteran and VA employee, he is committed to our success.  With his help, we will build upon the progress we have already made together.  Scott is a trusted leader and I know he will do a fantastic job.

David J. Shulkin, M.D.

Secretary, Department of Veterans Affairs
