Mastercard Vice Chair Mike Froman to serve as president, Council on Foreign Relations

March 1, 2023 | Purchase, N.Y.

We congratulate Mike Froman, who will serve as president, Council on Foreign Relations. It is a testament to his distinguished career spanning over three decades across the highest levels of the government and the private sector. His invaluable experience at the intersection of foreign policy, national security, and international economics makes him an ideal choice. Over the last five years as Mastercard vice chair and president for Strategic Growth, Mike has played an instrumental role overseeing our corporate strategy, growing strategic partnerships, scaling new business opportunities, and advancing our efforts to partner with governments and other institutions to address major societal and economic issues. During his tenure, he has built a world-class team of diverse thought leaders and innovators who have progressed our approaches to commercially sustainable social impact. 

Mike is set to depart Mastercard late in the second quarter and take on his new role on July 1. He'll succeed Richard Haass, the Council's president since 2003, who has announced he will be stepping down in June.
