Carlos Gutierrez, the former Commerce secretary under George W. Bush and a champion of immigration reform efforts, is going to be a co-chair at the Albright Stonebridge Group, moving up from his current position as a vice chairman of the firm.
In a statement announcing the move, ASG co-chair and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said Gutierrez’s advocacy on immigration “adds a vital dimension to the character of our firm and reinforces the concept that we can work together, regardless of political party, for the advancement of our economy and country.” Gutierrez, a former CEO of Kellogg Company, was born in Havana, Cuba, and has been a long-time proponent of overhauling the immigration system, even as the task has become more daunting within his own Republican Party.
The group’s roster contains several international-set all stars, including former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger, the firm’s third co-chair; former EPA Administrator Carol Browner; former German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer, and former Rep. and 9/11 Commission Co-Chairman Lee Hamilton, D-Ind.
