NTI Announces Promotions and Leadership Changes

Ernest J. Moniz and Joan Rohlfing are pleased to announce several key staff changes at the Nuclear Threat Initiative, a nonprofit, nonpartisan global security organization focused on reducing nuclear and biological threats imperiling humanity.

With the Senate confirmation of long-time NTI Executive Vice President Deborah Rosenblum as Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Defense Programs, Carmen MacDougall, an 11-year veteran of NTI as vice president for Communications, has been promoted to senior vice president. Her responsibilities include organization-wide strategic planning, human resources, diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, and board relations. Amy Hargrett, NTI’s treasurer and chief financial officer since 2017, is now a vice president with additional responsibilities for office operations. Mimi Hall replaces MacDougall as vice president for Communications, having served on the Communications team for 10 years, most recently as senior director for content. The changes took effect August 1.

“We are thrilled that Deborah has assumed such a crucial role at the Pentagon, and we are delighted to have top talent from inside our organization to take on these critical positions,” Rohlfing said. “Amy, Carmen, and Mimi are experienced, passionate NTI veterans who bring deep expertise and commitment to fulfilling NTI’s important mission.”

“This year, NTI is celebrating our 20-year anniversary. As we look to the future, our organization will rely on all of our exceptional program leaders to ensure we continue to make important progress on reducing nuclear, biological, and emerging existential threats,” said Moniz. “Congratulations to Deborah and to Carmen, Amy, and Mimi on their new roles.”
