CSIS Scholar Heather Conley Becomes President of German Marshall Fund

Ms. Heather Conley, Senior Vice President for Europe, Eurasia, and the Arctic, and Director of the Europe, Russia, and Eurasia Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), will become the next president of the German Marshall Fund (GMF).

Conely will become GMF's sixth president in January 2022, replacing Dr. Karen Donfried, who joined the Biden Administration as Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia after leading the Washington, DC-headquartered think tank for seven years.

GMF will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2022.  Founded in 1972 through a gift from Germany as a tribute to the Marshall Plan, GMF also has offices in Berlin, Brussels, Ankara, Belgrade, Bucharest, Paris, and Warsaw.
