Bush Alum Margaret Spellings Named CEO of Bipartisan Policy Center

Here is more from a Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) press release:

Today, the Bipartisan Policy Center announced former U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings will join the organization as its new CEO. As a veteran leader who has forged strong relationships on both sides of the aisle, she has decades of experience finding common-sense solutions to improve the lives of American families.

As CEO, she will guide the organization’s strategic direction and priorities, promote BPC’s policy recommendations, and be the chief steward of BPC’s bipartisan ethos and mission to help policymakers work across party lines to craft bipartisan solutions. “In a unanimous vote, the BPC Board of Directors approved the appointment of Margaret Spellings as our next CEO,” said Kelly Darnell, interim CEO of BPC.


Spellings most recently served as President and CEO of Texas 2036, a Dallas, Texas-based think tank founded in 2018 by Dallas attorney Tom Luce.  That think tanks' name is based on the year of Texas's bicentennial.
