Dina Powell McCormick [1] is an American financial executive and political advisor, best known for having been the United States Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy[2] to President Donald Trump.[3][4]

A lifelong member of the Republican Party,[5] she became involved in Texas-oriented Republican politics during and following her time at the University of Texas at Austin. During the George W. Bush administration, Powell served in several roles, first as an Assistant to the President for Presidential Personnel and then as Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs and Deputy Undersecretary of State for Public Affairs and Public Diplomacy.[4][6] In 2007, Powell joined Goldman Sachs, where she became a managing director (a middle management position, not equivalent to a CEO) and eventually a partner at the firm,[4] as well as president of its non-profit subsidiary, the Goldman Sachs Foundation.[7]

Powell joined the Trump administration during the transition period and remained thereafter. As a Deputy National Security Advisor she had a role in determining the first year of the administration's foreign policy,[8][9]especially in regard to Middle East policy.[10] She was also an Assistant to the President and Senior Counselor for Economic Initiatives,[11] a position – demanding about 20 percent of her time[12] – that continued after her security appointment.[13]

She left the administration in early 2018,[14][15] returning to work for Goldman Sachs, where she is a Partner and now serves on the Management Committee.[16] In October 2018, Powell was a leading candidate for the position of United States Ambassador to the United Nations,[17] but withdrew from consideration and remained with the financial firm. Powell also serves on the Department of Defense Business Board.[18]
