The White House has announced that Suzy George ’90—an MHC trustee and a principal at the international strategic consulting firm Albright Stonebridge Group LLC—will soon join the National Security Council staff.
In late August, she will assume her duties as deputy assistant to the president, executive secretary of the National Security Council, and chief of staff of the National Security Council staff. She succeeds Brian McKeon, who is moving to a post at the Department of Defense.
National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said, “Suzy George brings a wealth of foreign policy, government, and management experience to this position, through her long service at the Department of State and as a principal with the Albright Stonebridge Group. Her service at the highest levels of the State Department, where she engaged with senior leaders across the U.S. government and with foreign partners, gives me great confidence in her ability to lead the National Security Council staff.”
George has worked with the Albright Stonebridge Group LLC, and previously with The Albright Group LLC, since 2001. From 1997 to 2001, she served as the deputy chief of staff in the Department of State, overseeing the management and coordination of travel and meetings, as a liaison to the White House and other cabinet departments, and working across the department on a range of foreign policy initiatives for Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
In addition, George has served on Mount Holyoke’s Board of Trustees since 2012, and was chosen to receive the Alumnae Association’s Mary Lyon Award in 2003, for her contributions to international affairs and public policy.
