Does "named Monday" mean "named Monday by the president"?

-----------------------------------
It isn’t what you’d expect from a guy who’s about to take on a big role for the Obama administration. But for Dishman, the INTEL health advocate named Monday to lead a key part of the president’s Precision Medicine Initiative, it’s all part of his mission: using his first-hand experience with doctors and hospitals to convince people that the future of medicine can be very different from what it has been.

It was probably the person responsible in the administration for this initiative. I have no idea if that was then-President Obama or an official. It doesn't really matter- the announcement was made.
