URC Welcomes Ambassador Mark Green as New USAID Administrator

On Thursday, August 3, the U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed Mark Andrew Green to be the eighteenth Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

URC welcomes Ambassador Green who brings a wealth of experience to the job, having served as U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Wisconsin for four terms, a member of the Board of Directors of the Millennium Challenge Corporation and Malaria No More, and President of the International Republican Institute. Right out of college in the 1980s he and his wife taught English as volunteers with WorldTeach in Kenya.  URC also applauds the U.S. Senate for its bipartisan support throughout Ambassador Green’s swift confirmation process.

“Ambassador Green brings a long track record of leadership in development and foreign affairs at a particularly challenging time in the international development sector,” said URC President Jay S. Wechsler.

On August 7 Administrator Green ‏tweeted:  “I am honored to serve as the 18th Administrator of @USAID! Together we can make this world a safer, more prosperous place.” URC looks forward to being a partner with Administrator Green in achieving this goal.
