Europe & Eurasia

Our Europe & Eurasia team draws from decades of diverse expertise across the continent from careers in diplomacy, journalism, energy, security, public affairs, and academia. Richard Burt has led our work in Europe & Eurasia since 2007, following service as US Ambassador to Germany, Assistant Secretary of State for Europe, Chief US Negotiator in the START talks with the former Soviet Union, and most recently as a partner with McKinsey & Company. Our team also includes former US Ambassador to Poland Lee A. Feinstein.

Our Washington-based leadership team is supplemented by a network of associates and senior figures that extends from Brussels through Central Europe to Central Asia. From our Brussels office, we manage EU- and Member State issues.
