Chuck Hagel on Corporations

Republican Sr Senator (NE)


1999: Ran Private Sector Council,linking feds with companies

The Private Sector Council (PSC) was looking for a new president. Hagel took over in late fall 1990 and stayed the better part of 2 years.

The council helps link federal departments and agencies with member companies to give the federal officials access to ideas and methods used in the private sector. Departments or agencies can request help in any part of their operations: finance, human resources, information technology, or management. The member companies contribute their employees' expertise at no cost for a limited time. Hagel recruited additional companies to be part of the PSC and said he enjoyed his time there.
