Mr. Pompeo also led a team that executed America’s largest-ever global repatriation effort in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

     Prior to joining the Trump administration, Mr. Pompeo was serving in his fourth term as congressman from Kansas’ 4th District. He served on the House Intelligence Committee, Energy and Commerce Committee, and the House Select Benghazi Committee.

     Before serving in Congress, Mr. Pompeo spent a decade leading two manufacturing businesses in Wichita, Kansas. Mr. Pompeo founded Thayer Aerospace, a global supplier to the world’s leading commercial and military aircraft builders, serving as CEO.  He later became president of Sentry International, an oilfield equipment manufacturing, distribution, and service company.

     After graduating first in his class at the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1986, Mr. Pompeo served as a cavalry officer patrolling the Iron Curtain before the fall of the Berlin Wall. He also served with the 2nd Squadron, 7th Cavalry in the U.S. Army’s Fourth Infantry Division.

     Once completing his active duty, Mr. Pompeo graduated from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review. Mr. Pompeo worked as an attorney at Williams & Connolly immediately following Harvard.

     Mr. Pompeo now serves as a distinguished fellow at the Hudson Institute.  In 2021, he founded Champion American Values PAC, supporting political candidates across the country who will champion the U.S. and its founding principles first.

     Mr. Pompeo is originally from Orange, California. He is married to Susan Pompeo and has one son, Nick.
