ACUS Chairman Hagel Likely to Become SecDef

Former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE), Chairman of the Atlantic Council of the United States (ACUS), is likely to become the next Secretary of Defense.

Here is how Foreign Policy describes his current stint at ACUS:
Hagel became chairman of the Atlantic Council, where his duties have kept him front and center with the likes of Bono and Bill Clinton and other global dignitaries and military leaders. The group’s annual awards dinner is a who’s who of military and international affairs glitterati.
Here is a previous Think Tank Watch post on the "rise" of the Atlantic Council.

Based on the latest publicly available information, ACUS had total revenue of $7,955,033, and total assets of $6,643,988.  Hagel had no reportable compensation from ACUS.
