Carla Harris
Ms. Harris began her career with Morgan Stanley in the Mergers & Acquisitions department in 1987. Prior to joining Morgan Stanley, Carla received from Harvard Business School an MBA, Second Year Honors and an AB in economics from Harvard University, Magna Cum Laude. President Barack Obama appointed Carla to chair the National Women’s Business Council in 2013. With audiences, Carla is applauded for her grace and humor, as well as what she calls “Carla’s Pearls,” delightful bits of evergreen wisdom. Her presentations are colored with her experience as a senior member of the equity syndicate desk, executing transactions such as initial public offerings for UPS, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Ariba, Redback, and the $3.2 Billion common stock transaction for Immunex Corporation. She has been named to Fortune Magazine’s 50 Most Powerful Black Executives in Corporate America, U. S. Bankers Top 25 Most Powerful Women in Finance, and Black Enterprise’s Top 75 Most Powerful Women in Business, to mention a few.

John O. Brennan
Was sworn in as director of the Central Intelligence Agency on March 8, 2013. As director, he managed intelligence collection, analysis, covert action, counterintelligence and liaison relationships with foreign intelligence services.
Before becoming director, Brennan served at the White House for four years as assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. During that time, he advised the President on counterterrorism strategy and helped coordinate the U.S. government’s approach to homeland security, including its policies for responding to terrorism, cyber-attacks, natural disasters and pandemics. Brennan began his service in government at the CIA, where he worked from 1980 to 2005. In 1994 and 1995, he was the agency’s intelligence briefer to President Bill Clinton. After an assignment as a chief of station in the Middle East, Brennan served from 1999 to 2001 as chief of staff to George Tenet, who was then director of Central Intelligence. Brennan next worked as deputy executive director of the CIA until 2003, when he began leading a multiagency effort to establish what would become the National Counterterrorism Center. In 2004, he became the center’s interim director. After retiring from the CIA in 2005, Brennan worked in the private sector for three years. He also now serves as Senior National Security and Intelligence Analyst at NBC News and MSNBC.
