Tim Roemer Joins LAI Speakers Bureau for Exclusive Representation

Washington, DC, July 25, 2011 –

Leading Authorities, Inc. is pleased to announce that Tim Roemer, the former ambassador to the Republic of India, returns to Leading Authorities for exclusive representation. He was also the commissioner of the 9/11 Commission and a former congressman (D-IN) who focused on workforce issues and strengthening national security.

“We are extremely pleased that Ambassador Roemer rejoins Leading Authorities after returning from his role as ambassador to India. His ability to speak about strategies for companies looking to expand into India and the U.S.-India relationship as a whole is invaluable,” said Mark French, the president and CEO of Leading Authorities, Inc.

Roemer is an expert on India, diplomacy, national security, education, and politics and brings his energy and optimism to every presentation. Most notably, he discusses global security; America in the 21st century; business strategies relating to India; how companies need separate China and India models; and the relationship between the U.S. and India – in terms of diplomacy, national security, and trade.

President Obama nominated Roemer to be the 21st U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of India in 2009. During his two year tenure, India moved up to be the 12th leading trade partner of the United States. He and Indian Home Affairs Secretary G.K. Pillai also signed the Counterterrorism Cooperation Initiative, which expanded cooperation in various security areas. Roemer additionally opened the door for increased cooperation, technology transfer, and commercial sales in the defense and space industries.

Tim Roemer was also the key sponsor of legislation to establish the 9/11 Commission. After leaving Congress, he continued to work on strengthening national security as president of the Center for National Policy.

Roemer joins an exclusive roster that features such prominent political and national security figures as Senator Trent Lott (R-MS), Senator John Breaux (D-LA), the CIA’s General Michael Hayden, Ambassador Nicholas Burns, Ambassador Paul Wolfowitz, and General James Jones, and Dana Perino.
