“Government may be facing some big challenges right now, but history shows that during times of crisis, great public servants have stepped forward to show tremendous leadership. Government Executive consulted with the National Academy of Public Administration and the Partnership for Public Service to produce a list of notable civil servants leading up to the 21st century. The selections were, by necessity, based on subjective criteria. But they make an inspiring gallery,” notes the magazine.

Rivlin, now a  a senior fellow in the Economic Studies Program at the Brookings Institution in Washington and visiting professor at Georgetown University, was the founding director of the Congressional Budget Office. She served as director of the White House Office of Management and Budget in the first Clinton Administration and as vice chair of the Federal Reserve Board.
