Jon B. Alterman is a Senior Advisor to Teneo. In addition to his role at Teneo, Dr. Alterman is a senior vice president, holds the Zbigniew Brzezinski Chair in Global Security and Geostrategy, and is director of the Middle East Program at CSIS.

Prior to joining CSIS in 2002, he served as a member of the Policy Planning Staff at the U.S. Department of State and as a special assistant to the assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs. He has been an adviser to and member of several U.S. government panels, and he has testified numerous times before the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the UK House of Lords. He taught for many years at Harvard (from which he received his Ph.D.), the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, and George Washington University.
