David Miliband is president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee (IRC). He oversees the agency’s relief and development operations in over 30 countries, its refugee resettlement and assistance programs throughout the United States, and the IRC’s advocacy efforts in Washington and other capitals on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable people. Mr. Miliband has had a distinguished political career in the United Kingdom. From 2007 to 2010, he served as the youngest foreign secretary in three decades, driving advancements in human rights and representing the United Kingdom throughout the world. His accomplishments have earned him a reputation, in former President Bill Clinton's words, as "one of the ablest, most creative public servants of our time.” In 2016, Mr. Miliband was named one of the World’s Greatest Leaders by Fortune Magazine.
