Center for a New American Security (CNAS) Chief Executive Officer Michèle Flournoy has been named to the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board (PIAB). Ms. Flournoy will continue to serve as CEO of CNAS, while providing advice to the President on important intelligence and security matters.
By its own description, the PIAB exists exclusively to provide the President with an independent source of advice on the effectiveness with which the intelligence community is meeting the nation’s intelligence needs, and the vigor and insight with which the community is planning for the future. The PIAB has direct access to the President.
Ms. Flournoy will join Richard Danzig, a member of CNAS’ Board of Directors, on the PIAB. She will be one of only 11 members of the PIAB.
