EWI Welcomes Bruce McConnell

The EastWest Institute is delighted to announce the appointment of Bruce McConnell as Senior Vice President, a post he will take up on September 16th. McConnell comes most recently from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security where he served as Deputy Under Secretary for Cybersecurity.

At EWI, McConnell will be responsible for growing and leading the institute’s work to promote cooperation in cyberspace, expanding our traditional work on cybersecurity to include governance and development issues. He will also lead EWI’s networking with private and public sectors around the world, enhancing our relationships with those partners and assisting President John Mroz in setting the institute’s overall strategy to coordinate its broad array of programs.

“Bruce brings an impressive set of skills developed over a distinguished career in government and industry at the national and international level,” Mroz pointed out. “He is a passionate team builder, a consultative manager, and a fearless advocate for maintaining the civilian character of cyberspace and fulfilling its potential to improve the quality of life on the planet. We welcome him to EWI.”
