Alumni Spotlight: Evan McMullin on the Past, Present, and Future of the Republican Party

Evan McMullin served for over ten years as an undercover Operations Officer with the CIA's National Clandestine Service. His assignments included multiple conflict zone tours of duty in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Following his CIA service, Evan worked in Goldman Sachs' Investment Banking Division where he advised a variety of companies in the technology, clean energy, industrial and healthcare industries on mergers and acquisitions and capital raising. 

More recently, he served as a Senior Advisor on national security issues with the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the U.S. House of Representatives, and he's currently the Chief Policy Director with the House Republican Conference.
