BMORENEWS Profile: Meet Baltimore's Own Wes Moore

Wes Moore
Wes Moore

(BALTIMORE - June 16, 2008) - Wes Moore, 29, is an investment Banker for Citigroup.  A Former White House Fellow, 2006-2007, Wes served as Special Assistant to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.  The White House Fellowship is one of the Nation’s most prestigious leadership and public service programs.   

Wes, a paratrooper and Captain in the United States Army Reserves, served a combat tour of duty in Afghanistan. He served as the Director of Information Operations with the elite 1st Brigade of the 82nd Airborne Division. Wes spearheaded the American strategic support plan for the Afghan Reconciliation Program that unites former insurgents with the new Afghan Government.


Wes also completed an MLitt in International Relations from Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Johns Hopkins University and was awarded by the Maryland College Football Hall of Fame.  

His troubled childhood led him to create an organization called STAND!, that works with youth involved in the criminal justice system.  He is spearheading an initiative to bring a grand-family housing facility to Baltimore, Maryland and is authoring a book, published by Random House, entitled “Elevate: American Journeys into Manhood” due for a highly anticipated 2009 release.  

Wes was named one of America’s Top 50 Bachelors by People Magazine in 2002, and was recently named one of Ebony Magazine’s Top 30 Leaders Under 30 for 2007.
