Former Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette Joins ACCF Board of Advisors

Hon. Dan Brouillette

WASHINGTON, DC – The American Council for Capital Formation proudly announces that Dan Brouillette, former U.S. Secretary of Energy under President Trump, has joined its prestigious Board of Advisors.

Secretary Brouillette has three decades of experience in both the public and private sector. Prior to his strong bipartisan confirmation as Energy Secretary, he served as the Department’s Deputy Secretary.  He was a member of the President’s National Security Council and the Vice President’s National Space Council, and has served in other senior government positions, including as a state regulator with the Louisiana Mineral and Energy Board and as Chief of Staff to the US House Committee on Energy and Commerce. In the private sector, Brouillette was a Senior Vice President and corporate officer of USAA, the Nation’s leading provider of financial services to the military community. Before joining USAA, Secretary Brouillette was a Vice President of Ford Motor Company, where he served on its North American Operating Committee.  He is a veteran and former tank commander with the US Army’s highly decorated 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment (Blackhorse).

“The ACCF is truly honored to have the 15th Secretary of Energy serve on our Board of Advisors,” said ACCF President and CEO Mark Bloomfield.  “Dan Brouillette’s knowledge on energy issues and institutional understanding of Washington comes at a critical time when energy policy is at the top of the agenda of President Biden and the 117th Congress.”

For more than four decades, the ACCF has demonstrated a historical commitment to bipartisanship and to sound public policy through its Board of Advisors. From the public sector, it has included seven former cabinet secretaries, four U.S. Special Trade Representatives, two Administrators of the Environmental Protection Agency, former presidential chiefs of staff and senior White House staff from President Trump and his six predecessors, congressional committee chairmen and leadership from both Democrat and Republican conferences. From the private sector, CEOs and presidents from a wide array of businesses and trade associations have also served on our Board of Advisors.

“I’ve actively participated in ACCF events over the last two decades” Brouillette said.  “The ACCF is unique in its ability to attract diverse opinions from both sides of the aisle, along with the media and private sector, to have meaningful ‘deep dives’ on critical issues.  As the country faces a crossroads on energy policy, the ACCF is uniquely positioned to analyze policy options in the context of the broader economy and U.S. leadership in the world.  I look forward to lending my experience and voice as a Board member to help the ACCF advance its mission.”
