G. Calvin Mackenzie holds an endowed chair as The Goldfarb Family Distinguished Professor of Government at Colby College. He is among the county’s leading experts on the presidential transition process, literally writing the book on it, Leadership in Jeopardy: The Fraying of the Presidential Appointments System, Guidebook for the Senior Executive Service, and both editions of The Presidential Appointee’s Handbook. From 2000-2003, Professor Mackenzie was Senior Advisor to the Presidential Appointee Initiative in Washington while serving as Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution.
In additon to all that, Professor Mackenzie was my favorite professor from my days a mediocre student at Colby College in the late 1980s. Professor Mackenzie was an outstanding professor and it was great to reconnect with him and hear his insights into what goes on behind the scenes of the presidential transition.
