Andrew S. Natsios, former administrator of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), will join the Bush School faculty for the academic year 2012-2013 as an executive professor. As USAID administrator from 2001-2006, Natsios managed reconstruction programs in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Sudan. He also served as US Special Envoy to Sudan in 2006-2007. Since leaving government, Natsios has been on the faculty of Georgetown University.

From 1993 to 1998, Natsios was vice president of World Vision US, the largest faith-based non-governmental organization in the world, with programs in 103 countries. Earlier in his career, Natsios served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, and as the chief financial and administrative officer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. As chairman of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority from April 2000 to March 2001, Natsios was CEO of Boston’s Big Dig, the largest construction project in American history. His latest book, Sudan, South Sudan and Darfur: What Everyone Needs to Know, was published in 2012 by Oxford University Press.

Acting Bush School dean, Andrew Card, said he was especially pleased to have Andrew Natsios joining the faculty. “I am delighted that Andrew will share his extensive government, nonprofit, and private sector experiences and knowledge with our students,” Card said.
