Top 30 Execs to Watch Spotlight:
The Honorable Michele Flournoy is the Co-Founder and CEO of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), a bi-partisan national security and defense policy think tank. Flournoy served as Under Secretary of Defense for Policy from February 2009 to February 2012. In 2014, Flournoy was asked by the Obama Administration to serve as Chuck Hagel’s successor as Secretary of Defense, but turned down the job due to family concerns. Flournoy is rumored to be on the short list of Secretary of Defense Nominees in a potential Clinton Administration. Flournoy joined CSRA’s board of directors in November 2015, under newly-named CEO Larry Prior.
Reason to watch: As 2016 is a presentational election year, it will interesting to see what role CNAS will play regarding the national security policy.
