Created in 2004, MCC provides time-limited grants and assistance to developing countries that meet rigorous standards for good governance, from fighting corruption to respecting democratic rights.

Ms. Albright is the Chief Executive Officer of the Global Partnership for Education’s Secretariat and served in the Obama Administration from 2009 – 2013 as the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM).

Prior to EXIM, Ms. Albright held leadership roles at the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations (GAVI) and worked as a banker with a focus on emerging markets.

“Alice’s tremendous experience in the development space, U.S. government, and the private sector is an excellent match for MCC,” said Mahmoud Bah, MCC’s Acting Chief Executive Officer. “We are thrilled by this announcement.”
