Former Official at Education Dept. Joins American Council on Education

The American Council on Education on Wednesday announced that Daniel T. Madzelan, a former official at the U.S. Department of Education who once served as acting assistant secretary for postsecondary education, would be the successor to one of the council’s longtime lobbyists.

The council said that, as associate vice president for government relations, Mr. Madzelan would fill the role held by Becky H. Timmons, who retired last week after a four-decade career at ACE. Mr. Madzelan was an Education Department veteran who retired in the department’s recent exodus of key officials.
