Mark Green Named as New President of Wilson Center

It is officially the year of new think tank presidents.

The Wilson Center has just announced that Amb. Mark Green will be the new President, CEO, and Director of the the think tank.

Amb. Green was previously the Executive Director of the McCain Institute for International Leadership and before that he served as Administrator of the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

Consequently, the McCain Institute announced today that Amb. Josette Sheeran, a Founding Trustee of the institute, will join the institute's leadership team in the newly created position of Executive Chairman of the McCain Institute.

Amb. Green succeeds former Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA), who announced last July that she would be stepping down on Feb. 28, 2021.
