Secretary William S. Cohen Commends Ambassador Marc Grossman on Selection as U.S. Special Representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan
Washington, DC -- William S. Cohen, Chairman and CEO of The Cohen Group, today commends Ambassador Marc Grossman on his selection as the U.S. Special Representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan.
"Marc Grossman is a diplomat and a patriot of the highest order, and it is not a surprise that he would choose to answer his country's call once again," said Secretary Cohen. "His departure will be a loss for The Cohen Group, but a real gain for our country."
Ambassador Grossman has served as Vice Chairman of The Cohen Group since his retirement from government in 2005. Prior to joining The Cohen Group, Ambassador Grossman served as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs and U.S. Ambassador to Turkey, among other posts.
He was appointed this week to fill the Pakistan and Afghanistan position vacancy caused by the death of Ambassador Richard Holbrooke on December 13, 2010.
