Secretary Pompeo to Open Keynote Series at Metalcasting Congress

Metalcasting Congress 2024, the largest gathering of the North American foundry supply chain, will showcase compelling keynotes from three notable speakers. Among them is the sole person to have held positions as both U.S. Secretary of State and CIA Director, Mike Pompeo.

Set to address the audience at Milwaukee's Baird Center on Tuesday, April 23, Secretary Pompeo will explore his extraordinary journey — from graduating at the top of his class at West Point to serving as the nation’s most senior spy at the CIA — providing a unique perspective on "Leadership in Uncertain Times." Attendees can expect a captivating talk that delves into lessons learned in his aerospace, energy, and governmental roles.
