“Ambassador Barbara Barrett is exactly the kind of leader we need to continue to propel the U.S. Air Force into the 21st Century,” said Senator Perdue. “Ambassador Barrett is a well-respected aeronautics expert with years of international business experience. It’s clear she is committed to keeping new priorities on track, like the Advanced Battle Management System and U.S. Space Force. Without a doubt, Ambassador Barrett’s experience as both a pilot and astronaut, in addition to her business career, will be a tremendous asset as we work to modernize our defense capabilities and counter global threats.”


When Senator Perdue was elected, he was the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress. He is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
