Director, Global Communications and Advocacy
Richard Mills joined the George Institute from the World Bank, where he was most recently Director of Corporate Communications. There he helped lead efforts to tell the story of a World Bank that more than doubled its support to developing countries during the financial crisis while becoming more focused on openness, results and accountability. He spearheaded the use of new and creative tools across social media, marketing and outreach.
A spokesman for some of the highest profile parts of the United States government, from Congress to the Executive Office of the President to the State Department, Mr Mills has 20 years of experience with international issues in over 60 countries, from trade, economics, conflict and, most recently, poverty and development.
