WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service announced today the selection of Beverly Ortega Babers as the new Chief Human Capital Officer. In this new position, Babers will report to John Dalrymple, Deputy Commissioner for Operations Support. Federal law requires executive departments and agencies to name or appoint a senior official to be the agency's Chief Human Capital Officer.
“Beverly brings a wealth of experience and breadth of knowledge in not only human resources but tax litigation and tax administration to this critical position on my senior leadership team,” said IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson. “Moreover, she will bring a fresh perspective and focus to the many challenges facing our workforce.”
Currently, Babers is the Director, Technical Services, in the IRS Appeal Division, overseeing tax policy and procedure, technical guidance and processing services functions within Appeals.
Babers joined the IRS in 1999 as an Assistant to the Commissioner, providing advice on tax policy and tax administration matters.
Before coming to the IRS, Babers was Chief of Staff and Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General of the Tax Division of the Department of Justice, where she made recommendations for appellate and litigation strategy and oversaw administrative functions.
Previous to her government service, Babers was an associate with the law office of Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue in Washington, DC.
Babers is a 1989 graduate of the Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California at Berkeley.
