WASHINGTON, DC – The Atlantic Council today named Jason Marczak as the new Director of its Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center. He will lead the Center at a pivotal time for the future of Latin America and the region’s place in the world. One of Marczak’s immediate priorities will be the crisis in Venezuela.
Jason Marczak joined the Council in October 2013 as Director of its Economic Growth Initiative to help launch the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center. Since its inception, Marczak has been at the forefront of setting the Center’s strategic direction, positioning it as the go-to reference for insight and impact.
Most recently, Marczak directed a four-country task force on Central America’s Northern Triangle with General John F. Kelly as the co-chair before he joined the Trump administration. Jason jointly oversaw a similar bipartisan effort on Colombia, co-chaired by Senators Benjamin Cardin and Roy Blunt. Marczak is a regular commentator, with appearances in hundreds of US and regional press outlets.

Desde la fundación del centro, Marczak ha ayudado a definir su dirección estratégica, posicionándolo como referente de impacto y conocimiento.
Más recientemente, Marczak dirigió un Grupo de Trabajo sobre el Triángulo Norte de Centroamérica con el General John F. Kelly sirviendo como co-director antes de unirse a la administración Trump.

The Atlantic Council has a 55-year history of promoting free speech, peaceful protest and civil dialogue to address global challenges. The Council frequently convenes small, off-the-record sessions such as the one for President Erdoğan, at which he fielded questions that addressed issues ranging from international to domestic challenges.
Atlantic Council events never endorse a particular speaker but provide an independent platform for leaders to participate in candid conversations. The proper authorities will determine what, if any, actions should be taken in response to the violence. Such behavior only detracts from the Council’s foundational mission of promoting constructive US leadership alongside friends and allies to secure the future.
