MITRE Adds Former Rep. Mike Rogers and Cathy Minehan to Board, Names John Hamre Chairman

New England Council member The MITRE Corporation recently added the Honorable Mike Rogers and Cathy Minehan to its Board of Trustees and named John Hamre as Chairman of the Board.

Mike Rogers represented Michigan’s  8th Congressional district in the U.S. House for 14 years, serving on the Energy and Commerce Committee and chairing the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Cathy Minehan is the managing director Arlington Advisory Partners, former dean of Simmons College, and former CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.

“Mr. Rogers and Ms. Minehan have distinguished themselves as leaders in their respective areas,” said Alfred Grasso, MITRE president and CEO. “The insights Mr. Rogers brings to MITRE from his experience in cybersecurity and intelligence will strengthen our ability to serve the public interest and our sponsors. We are privileged to welcome Ms. Minehan back to the board. Her strong background in business and management will be enormously valuable in supporting MITRE’s mission.”

John Hamre is a former U.S. deputy defense secretary and is the president of the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Before becoming deputy defense secretary, Hamre served as the Pentagon’s comptroller.

“Dr. Hamre brings a remarkable understanding and strategic viewpoint on national security issues,” said Alfred Grasso, MITRE president and CEO. “His leadership, knowledge, and experience will be invaluable as MITRE takes on a variety of challenges for our national security sponsors and other government organizations. I look forward to working more closely with him in overseeing the seven federally funded research and development centers that we operate.”

The New England Council congratulates MITRE for adding such a distinguished group of leaders to its board. Read more in the press release on Hamre and the press release on Rogers and Minehan.
