Positive RSVP Response Required for Admittance

The Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs will host a Director's Lunch with Adam Szubin the Acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence at the U.S. Treasury Department.

Adam Szubin was nominated by the White House to serve as Treasury’s Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence on April 16, 2015.  This position leads the Treasury Department’s policy, enforcement, regulatory, and intelligence functions aimed at identifying and disrupting the lines of financial support to international terrorist organizations, proliferators of weapons of mass destruction, narcotics traffickers, and other actors posing a threat to our national security or foreign policy. The Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence is also responsible for overseeing the Department’s efforts to combat money laundering and financial crimes.

Szubin was named the Director of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) by U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson on August 1, 2006. In his role as OFAC Director, Szubin was responsible for administering and enforcing the United States Government’s economic sanction programs to advance foreign policy and national security objectives. These programs target supporters of terrorism, proliferators of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), international narcotics traffickers, and select foreign countries.

Szubin received his J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School in 1999, and his B.A., magna cum laude, from Harvard College in 1995.  Szubin was also a Fulbright scholar. He lives with his wife and three children in Washington, DC.
