Subject : Appointment of the Deputy Director Specialized Services
Division, Blind and Visually Impaired and Deaf & Hard of Hearing
Joe Xavier has been appointed by Governor Schwarzenegger as the Deputy
Director for the Specialized Services Division, Blind and Visually Impaired
and Deaf & Hard of Hearing (SSD) for the Department of Rehabilitation (DOR).
Joe will assume the full range of duties and responsibilities for the SSD.
Joe has extensive qualifications and is uniquely qualified for the position.
In May 2008, Joe was appointed by Governor Schwarzenegger, for the position
of Deputy Director, Independent Living and External Affairs Division, and
has served in an exemplary manner. Joe has over twelve years of public
administration experience, fourteen years of business ownership through the
DOR Business Enterprises Program (BEP), and over 20 years of participating
in community and advocacy organizations. Joe is a fellow member of the
Sierra Health Leadership Program, and a graduate of the California Health

appointment to Deputy Director, Joe earned the trust of the independent
living community; leading the distribution of $12.8 million in stimulus
dollars to the community with transparency and collaboration. Joe was
elected to serve on boards of several organizations, including the
California Vendors Policy Committee (CVPC). As a blind consumer and
beneficiary of the DOR's services, Joe has the experience and understands
the challenges and opportunities available to individuals with disabilities
and the services required to foster success. Joe's background and knowledge
from working in various sections of the DOR, along with his business
experience, uniquely positions him to administer the various programs within
the Specialized Services Division.
Please join me in congratulating Joe on his appointment.
