GSA IG at Navigant
You may remember former GSA Inspector General Brian Miller, right, from his high-profile role in revealing GSA's over-the-top conference spending in Las Vegas, which led to wider reforms. He recently joined Navigant, where we snapped him with Navigant DC managing partner Steve Stanton.
When speaking about that infamous investigation, Brian often used the phrase above. His former colleagues at the Inspector General's office made him this inscribed "stone" as a memento. At GSA, Brian headed a team of more than 300 auditors and investigators. He'll use that background to help Navigant clients navigate government investigations and regulatory compliance.
In his office, Brian pointed out this flag that's unique to the GSA IG. He was in the role for almost ten years. A little-known aspect of his work was helping recover lost and stolen art created under New Deal programs. He even discussed the search for the thousands of artworks on Antiques Roadshow.
If you look closely at this check, you can see the the amount of money Brian's credited with saving the American taxpayer as GSA IG: more than $6.7 billion. Before he headed to GSA, he was with the DOJ for 15 years, including as an AUSA for the Eastern District of Virginia.
