CAPS is thrilled to announce that David Maxwell has been appointed to the position of Vice President of the Center for Asia Pacific Strategy. Colonel (ret.) Maxwell brings a wealth of leadership and experience from a distinguished, 30-year career in the U.S. Army Special Forces.
“I am honored to join CAPS as Vice President to support the vison of our CEO and President and a distinguished board of directors,” said Maxwell. “Serving as a strategic advisor for the past two years provided me with an exceptional view to see this young think tank evolve to a very nimble and agile organization that punches well above its weight. The people and the mission make it very worthwhile and rewarding.”
“What especially appeals to me is the importance of alliances and relationships throughout the Asia-Pacific region but also with “Asia hands” from other regions, especially Europe. There is a like-minded view that the Asia Pacific region is important to our collective security and together we must stand up for the rules based international order. I hope to be able to contribute to the continued strategic development of CAPS as well as strategic engagement with partners in the U.S, throughout the Asia Pacific, and around the world.”
