The Agency of Commerce and Community Development announced that William Masterson of South Burlington is the new Director of the Vermont Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC).“We are very pleased to welcome Bill to our team,” said Commerce and Community Development Secretary Kevin Dorn, whose agency includes the Department of Economic Housing and Community Development, where the PTAC is located.“His experience as the contract manager for the DOD’s Defense Logistics Agency in Burlington makes him an ideal candidate to lead the PTAC, and continue its award-winning work helping Vermont firms get access to government contracts,” Dorn said.The Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), with a staff of three, assists Vermont companies seeking to contract with the federal or state government, or subcontract with companies who do.They were instrumental in assisting such companies as Revision Eyewear in Essex Junction, which makes ballistic eye protection for the military, and Darn Tough Socks of Northfield, which manufactures socks, win significant defense-related contracts.Funding for the PTAC is largely federal, and has been strongly supported by Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.The Vermont PTAC was voted “PTAC of the Year” for 2009 by their peers in the national organization.Masterson has a BS in business from SUNY Plattsburgh; a Master’s in Business from St. Michael’s College; and a Master’s in Public Administration/Government from Harvard, and worked for the Department of Defense from 1987 until 2005.“I’m glad to have an opportunity to grow new businesses; help existing businesses; and create job opportunities for Vermonters through the acquisition of government contracts,” said Masterson.He will begin work with the Agency of Commerce and Community Development immediately.
