“I am pleased to welcome Morgan Ortagus as our new State Department Spokesperson. Morgan brings outstanding credentials and a record of public service to the position. 

“She has worked her entire career in financial services, consulting, and diplomacy.  She is an active U.S. Naval Reserve Officer, and was co-founder and Managing Director of GO Advisors, and a national security contributor at Fox News.  

“Morgan also helped found EY’s Geostrategic Business Group, and she was a Global Relationship Manager at Standard Chartered Bank in the Public Sector Group covering clients in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

“Previously, Morgan was an intelligence analyst at the Department of Treasury and began her government service at the U.S. Agency for International Development, where in 2007 she spent several months in Baghdad, Iraq.  After serving in Iraq, she was assigned to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 2010 as the Deputy U.S. Treasury Attache to the Kingdom.

“Morgan will no doubt help the State Department fulfill its mission of promoting and defending the Administration’s foreign policy priorities for the American people and among the international community,” Pompeo said.
