WASHINGTON, Apr 7—Rose Gottemoeller, former director of the Carnegie Moscow Center and a senior associate in the Carnegie Russia and Eurasia Program in Washington, has been confirmed Assistant Secretary of State for Verification and Compliance. Gottemoeller has also been designated as the lead negotiator for a follow-on to the START Treaty, set to expire in December.

Welcoming the announcement, the president of the Endowment, Jessica T. Mathews, said:

“We are delighted for Rose. It is bittersweet to lose such a valued colleague, and someone who has been such a leader at Carnegie, but there is simply no one better qualified to play the critically important role to which she has been named. I know she will continue to build her long track record of success.”

Gottemoeller is a leading international expert on nuclear security, strategic stability, nonproliferation, arms control, Russian-American relations, and nuclear issues in post-Soviet territories. As director of the Carnegie Moscow Center from 2006-2008, she was simultaneously co-chair of the Center’s Nonproliferation Program, initiated and led the Forum on Energy Security, and ran a series of seminars and roundtables on the U.S.-Russian security relationship with the participation of key Russian and international experts, political and public figures.

From October 2000 to December 2005, Gottemoeller served as senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, where she held a joint appointment with the Russia and Eurasia Program and the Nonproliferation Program.

Prior to her work at the Carnegie Endowment, Gottemoeller served in the U.S. Department of Energy from 1997 to 2000, which included positions as deputy undersecretary for defense and nuclear nonproliferation, and assistant secretary for nonproliferation and national security, with responsibility for nonproliferation cooperation with Russia and the Newly Independent States.
