Rice: New Consulting Firm Will Help U.S. Companies In “Key Emerging Markets”


Condoleezza Rice responds to our report from yesterday that she’s starting a strategic consulting firm with Stephen Hadley, the RiceHadley Group.

In a statement to TPMmuckraker, Rice’s chief of staff, Colby Cooper, said:

Condoleezza Rice and Stephen Hadley, along with Anja Manuel, have recently founded a small strategic advisory firm focused on helping U.S. companies doing business abroad — especially in key emerging markets like China, India, Brazil, the Middle East and others. In addition, Dr. Rice remains on the faculty of Stanford University and the Hoover Institution.

Manuel served in the State Department, as Special Assistant to Under Secretary for Political Affairs Nicholas Burns, during Rice’s tenure as Secretary as State. She is currently at the Washington D.C. law firm WilmerHale.
