United States – AMBASSADOR NOYES: Ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon. My name is Julieta Valls Noyes. I am the deputy director of FSI, and it is my distinct pleasure to introduce John Sullivan, our Deputy Secretary of State for the past year and a half, someone who has won over our employees with his warmth. He is a good friend– you have. (Laughter.)
He came to the State Department with prior experience in senior positions at the Departments of Defense, Commerce, and Justice, and is a good friend of and frequent visitor to FSI where he regularly speaks to the ambassadorial seminar and at other events.
