Steve Coll has announced his intention to step down as President of the New America Foundation later this year when a successor is selected.
Coll has led the organization for the past five years. Before joining New America, Coll served as Managing Editor of The Washington Post from 1998 to 2004. He is currently a staff writer at The New Yorker and the author of numerous books, including his most recent, Private Empire: ExxonMobil and American Power. When a new President is in place, Coll will transition into a Senior Fellow position with New America's National Security Studies Program as he pursues a follow-up to his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001. A Board-led search for a new President is underway and is being chaired by David Bradley, Chairman and Owner of Atlantic Media Company.
