"Garrett’s extensive background in communications and global public affairs as well as his inside-the-beltway experience will be an invaluable asset to CPD as we continue to expand our reach to Washington, DC and beyond," said CPD Advisory Board Chair Barry Sanders. “I am honored to welcome him to the Advisory Board.”

“National Security is a crucial context for the practice of public diplomacy, and Garrett’s experience and perspective from serving at the highest levels of our government are immensely valuable,” said CPD Director Jay Wang. “And to have a double Trojan on the Advisory Board is especially meaningful.”
