This week, the American Foreign Policy Council (AFPC) was delighted to welcome S. Enders Wimbush as Distinguished Fellow for Strategic Studies. Prior to joining AFPC, Mr. Wimbush worked as a defense and security strategist for Booz Allen Hamilton, Science Applications International Corporation, and his own company, StrateVarious Inc. He has held senior positions at the German Marshall Fund of the United States, Hudson Institute, and the Rand Corporation.
Mr. Wimbush served as Director of Radio Liberty in Munich, Germany at the end of the Cold War, when the Berlin Wall was torn down and the USSR collapsed. Later, he was nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate as a Governor on the Broadcasting Board of Governors, overseeing all U.S. government-funded international media, including the Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. He has testified to Congress to promote refocusing and reforming this vital U.S. capability.
“Enders is a terrific addition to AFPC,” said Senior Vice President Ilan Berman. “Very few people have as much practical experience in crafting strategy toward Europe, Eurasia and the Indo-Pacific. Enders is a true expert on geopolitics and strategy, and his intellectual contributions will greatly strengthen our work.”
