FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GEN. DAVID PETRAEUS JOINS TEAM RUBICON’S BOARD OF ADVISORS
LOS ANGELES (6/18/13) – Team Rubicon (TR) is pleased to announce the addition of General David Petraeus USA (U.S. Army, Retired) to its board of advisors.
General Petraeus served our Nation for some 38-1/2 years, over 37 in uniform and then 14 months as the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency between 2011 and 2012. He held three four-star assignments: Commander of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan, Commander of U.S. Central Command, and Commanding General of Multi-National Force–Iraq. He spent over 6-1/2 of his final 10 years in uniform deployed, in the Balkans, Iraq, Afghanistan, or elsewhere in the Mideast.
“I am delighted to be invited to serve on the Team Rubicon Board of Advisors. ‘TR’ is an extraordinary organization, one that both serves our nation when its communities are most in need and serves our veterans by reuniting them to once again perform missions that are larger than self. In so doing, TR provides an opportunity to contribute for those who have done so admirably in the past and seek to do so again after having taken off the uniform. It will be an honor to be involved with such a wonderful organization and to work together again with some of the best of what deservedly has come to be known as the New Greatest Generation — those who have served our Nation in uniform since 9/11. Beyond that, it will be a particular honor to help an outfit founded by two great former noncommissioned officers!” said General Petraeus.
“We’re honored to have General Petraeus join the team. My cofounder, William McNulty, and I personally served under his command in Iraq as part of his bold surge strategy. We look forward to him bringing the same creativity to help us solve our major strategic questions moving forward.” said Jake Wood, Team Rubicon’s President and Cofounder.
