35 - Jamie Morin
Air Force Comptroller; nominee for Director, Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation
Seen as one of the Pentagon’s rising stars, Morin, 38, is Air Force comptroller, but nominated to become the next director of the Pentagon’s Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation office. In that role, he will be at the forefront of the budgetary analysis that will be crucial to Pentagon decision making in the years ahead. Few jobs will be more important to decide which programs, organizations or initiatives survive and what gets cut — assuming he’s confirmed by the Senate. In his five years as Air Force comptroller, he managed a $110 billion budget and was a key figure in establishing the service’s Global Strike Command and strongly supported the US nuclear enterprise. Armed with a Ph.D. from Yale and experience conducting research for Andy Marshall during his stint at Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, Morin is widely respected for his analytical, budget and strategic skills. This year he was named as a “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum.
