Save to My Resources

Governor
Edmund G. “Jerry” Brown Jr. of California and Charles A. Bowsher, former
Comptroller General of the United States and head of the General Accounting
Office, have joined the Board of Directors of the Nuclear Threat Initiative
(NTI), an organization working to prevent catastrophic attacks with weapons of
mass destruction and disruption (WMDD)—nuclear, biological, radiological,
chemical, and cyber.

“We
are delighted to welcome these new board members,” said former Senator Sam
Nunn, co-chairman and chief executive officer of NTI. “Governor Brown is a
strong advocate for reducing nuclear threats and will bring excellent
leadership experience to the Board. Chuck Bowsher has played an invaluable
advisory role on fiscal matters, and in the future we will benefit even more
from his valuable expertise.”

Edmund
G. Brown Jr. currently serves as the Governor of California, after being
elected in 1974, 1978, 2010, and 2014. Brown was previously elected California
Attorney General in 2006, Mayor of Oakland in 1998 and California Secretary of
State in 1970.  Brown consistently works to raise public consciousness
about today’s nuclear threats. In a review of My Journey at the Nuclear
Brink
by Dr. William J. Perry, Brown urges action on nuclear security to
prevent leaders from “sleepwalking” into a new Cold War.

Charles
Bowsher served as Comptroller General of the United States and Head of the
General Accounting Office from 1981 until 1996.  With a congressional
mandate to audit, evaluate, or investigate virtually all federal operations,
GAO under his leadership became increasingly involved in some of the most
important issues of the day, producing in-depth reports both at the specific
request of Congress and on its own initiative. Brown and Bowsher join a Board
that includes 22 members from 10 countries.
