USGLC Welcomes New Leadership at Millennium Challenge Corporation

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Global Leadership Coalition President and CEO Liz Schrayer released the following statement on the Senate confirmation of Sean Cairncross:

The USGLC is pleased to recognize the new leadership at the Millennium Challenge Corporation, an innovative development agency that has worked to promote economic growth and help fight global poverty. We congratulate Sean Cairncross as the agency’s new Chief Executive Officer and look forward to working with him and his team to advance America’s global development agenda around the world.

USGLC also congratulates long-time friend, former U.S. Representative Ander Crenshaw and George Marcus, on their confirmation to the Board of Directors of the Millennium Challenge Corporation.

Given the myriad of global challenges and opportunities, it is encouraging to see both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue coming together to fill these critically important positions in our development and diplomatic institutions.
