Former DOD official Michele Flournoy joins Boston Consulting Group

Five months after stepping down from her post as Defense Department under secretary for policy, Michèle Flournoy has resurfaced in the private sector.

Flournoy has joined Boston Consulting Group as a senior adviser, where she will be providing advice on driving change in government, according to a release from BCG.

“Michèle has served at the forefront of efforts to redefine U.S. national security in the post-9/11 world, while also helping to lead the DOD in a time of global challenges,” Joe Davis, BCG senior partner and head of the Washington-based U.S. public sector practice, said in the release. “Her strategic insight and experience will be invaluable in helping our government clients tackle their most critical challenges.”

Flournoy stepped down as the Pentagon's third-in-command back in February to spend more time with family and reportedly to contribute to the Obama re-election campaign. As under secretary of defense for policy, she was the highest-ranking woman in Pentagon history.

Flournoy also was a co-founder of the Center for New American Security and previously was a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
