Press Release

PBGC Announces New Chief Policy Officer

Issued by PBGC [Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation]

June 17, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) announced the appointment of Ann Orr as Chief Policy Officer.

"PBGC welcomes Ann back to serve in a new capacity," PBGC Director Gordon Hartogensis said. "She previously served at PBGC from 2011-2019 and brings a wealth of agency knowledge and experience to our mission of protecting the retirement security of millions of Americans."

In her new position as Chief Policy Officer, Orr leads the Office of Policy and External Affairs. In this role, she oversees the coordination of policy development, analysis, research, and legislative affairs, as well as agency communications and interactions with PBGC stakeholders. Orr was most recently acting director of the Center for Presidential Transition at the Partnership for Public Service.

Orr served as chief of staff at PBGC from 2011-2019, where she helped manage top agency priorities and provided strategic advice to the Director and agency officials. She also served as liaison to the Board of Directors and worked closely with White House officials and Congress.

Previously in her career, Orr worked at the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), where she served as chief of staff. Additionally, she spent 10 years on Capitol Hill as a professional staff member on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee. There, she aided in efforts to enact legislation in elementary, secondary, and vocational education.

Outside of her work in government, Orr was the executive director of two private-sector foundations: the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation and The National Trust for the Humanities.

Orr holds a B.A. from Yale University.

About PBGC

PBGC protects the retirement security of over 34 million American workers, retirees, and beneficiaries in both single-employer and multiemployer private sector pension plans.

PBGC is directly responsible for the benefits of more than 1.5 million participants and beneficiaries in failed pension plans. The Single-Employer Program is financed by insurance premiums, investment income, and assets and recoveries from failed single-employer plans. The Multiemployer Program is financed by insurance premiums, and the Special Financial Assistance program for financially troubled multiemployer plans is financed by general taxpayer money.
