Former Congressman GLENN NYE named CSPC PRESIDENT & CEO
Washington D.C. - The Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress (CSPC) is pleased to announce that The Honorable Glenn C. Nye succeeded Maxmillian Angerholzer III as President & CEO effective August 7, 2017.
“I am delighted to announce Glenn as our new President & CEO,” said Ambassador Tom Pickering, Chairman of the CSPC Board of Trustees, “Glenn’s time in the Foreign Service and as a Member of the 111th United States Congress has proven his ability to lead in a nonpartisan, pragmatic fashion that is vital in today’s time of political deadlock. I have full confidence that Glenn will build on Max Angerholzer’s strong leadership and continue to defend and promote the Center’s mission of educating future public policy leaders on the lessons of history, while serving as an honest broker between Congress, the White House, and private sector.”
Nye is a former politician who bridges the public policy and technology communities. He served Virginia’s second congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives where he distinguished himself as a bipartisan legislator, ranking among the most independent voting members. He was a member of the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of centrist Democrats promoting a strong national defense and a balanced budget. Nye served on the Armed Services, Veterans, and Small Business committees, chairing the Small Business sub-committee on Contracting and Technology. He was commended for consistent bipartisan support of a pro-growth economic agenda, strong investments in national security and support of veterans and military families. As a Congressman he earned the endorsements of the Chamber of Commerce, the NFIB, and the VFW.
After graduating from the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, Nye spent his early career as a U.S. diplomat serving the State Department and USAID in the Balkans, Southeast Asia, Afghanistan and the Middle East. He was recognized with a Superior Honor Award for brokering the release of an American held hostage by insurgents in Macedonia, and participated in negotiations for the U.S.-Singapore Free Trade Agreement. He also led economic and political stabilization operations supporting counter-insurgency missions in Afghanistan and Iraq. Following his service in Congress, Nye became an advisor to technology companies, acting as liaison between executives and policymakers in the areas of data analysis and the digital economy.
