WASHINGTON – Partnership for a Secure America (PSA) proudly welcomes Ambassador Thomas J. Miller as the newest member of the Board of Directors. Ambassador Miller brings a wide range of foreign policy experience to PSA, having served as Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina and Greece.

Tom Miller is currently the President/CEO of International Executive Service Corps, a non-profit that furnishes expertise to the developing world to train in best business practices.  In addition, in 2011, Tom was appointed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to be the Chair of the Board of the International Commission on Missing Persons, an internationally acclaimed organization that identifies missing persons in many countries by using DNA-matching and other techniques.  In 2009, Tom was President and CEO of the United Nations Association of the U.S. From 2005-08, he served as CEO of Plan International, a large nongovernmental organization that works in 66 countries to improve the lives of children in developing countries. 

A 29-year career diplomat, Tom's experience in the Foreign Service spanned many continents.  From 2001-04, he served as U.S. ambassador to Greece, where he focused on the security concerns of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and domestic counter-terrorism.  From 1999-2001, as U.S. Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina, he worked on helping the country recover after a devastating war.  From 1997-99, he was Special Coordinator for the Cyprus negotiations (rank of ambassador).  He was also posted to Thailand as well as the State Department in Washington, where he focused on North Africa, the Middle East, and counter-terrorism issues.
