The Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments announces the intent of president and CEO, Dr. Andrew Krepinevich, to step down early next year, and the planned departure of senior analyst Todd Harrison this fall to CSIS.
“CSBA has been extremely fortunate, not to mention the national security community, to have the services of two of the absolute best in the business, and we treasure our enduring friendship and affiliation,” said CSBA Board Chair, Nelson Ford. “Neither are easily or exactly replaced, but we’ll undertake a wide search, with interest already very high given CSBA’s mission, standing and resident talent.”
Krepinevich’s statement regarding his intent to step down:
After 22 years of serving as the president of the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA), I am stepping down from my position in March 2016 to devote more time to the work I enjoy the most: thinking and writing about defense policy and strategy, and engaging in the public debate. I look forward to working closely with CSBA’s board of directors in the coming months in the search to identify my successor.
Harrison’s statement regarding his plans to join CSIS:
Working at CSBA has been one of the best experiences of my career, and I will always be grateful to CSBA—and Andrew in particular—for giving me such a tremendous opportunity. While I am excited for the new opportunities that await me at CSIS, I will miss the many friends and colleagues I have had the privilege to work with at CSBA over the past six years.
