André Mendes, Director of Global Operations, Broadcasting Board of Governors

When the General Services Administration wanted to move about 60 Broadcasting Board of Governors employees from a building close by to one several blocks away, the BBG seized the opportunity.

Phase one of the new open-office plan is almost complete and is changing the interior look of the 76-year-old building. André Mendes is director of Global Operations at BBG. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss how he settled into his new office.
