August 28, 2012
WASHINGTON, August 28, 2012 – The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is pleased to announce that Scott Miller, former director of global trade policy at Procter & Gamble, has joined CSIS as the new William M. Scholl Chair in International Business. Mr. Miller succeeds Meredith Broadbent, who has been appointed to the International Trade Commission. Ms. Broadbent had served CSIS as Scholl Chair since 2010.
“Scott is simultaneously a practitioner and a theoretician,” said John Hamre, CSIS president and CEO. “He understands trade policy in both dimensions and can speak effectively to both audiences. We believe Scott can bring tremendous focus and energy to the trade agenda in coming years.”
In his role as director of global trade policy at Procter & Gamble, Mr. Miller led numerous business coalition campaigns for free trade agreements and founded US Trade, the U.S. private sector’s communications platform at World Trade Organization (WTO) ministerial meetings. Before becoming director of global trade policy, Mr. Miller was director of national government relations for Procter & Gamble and worked there as a marketing director and brand manager.
Mr. Miller previously served as chairman of the National Foreign Trade Council’s WTO Working Group and chairman of the Trade and Investment Committee of the U.S. Council for International Business. He is also a former vice chairman for policy at the National Center for APEC and has advised the U.S. government in several capacities: as a member of the State Department’s Advisory Committee for International Economic Policy (ACIEP), as a member of the Commerce Department’s Industry Trade Advisory Committee (ITAC) for Consumer Goods, and as chairman of the ITAC Investment Working Group.
In 2003, Mr. Miller helped found the Business Council for Global Development. He has led many pro-trade business coalitions, including those supporting trade promotion authority (2001–2002) and the U.S.–Central America Free Trade Agreement (2003–2005). In 2010, he received the Lighthouse Award from the Washington International Trade Foundation in recognition of his contributions to trade policy and practice.
Mr. Miller replaces Meredith Broadbent who joins the International Trade Commission following her nomination by President Barack Obama and recent approval by Congress. CSIS congratulates Ms. Broadbent on this achievement and salutes her invaluable stewardship of the Scholl International Business program.
