Wes Moore Joins The Boardroom
Wes Moore is a United States Army veteran, author, entrepreneur and producer who is now running for Governor of Maryland. He joins Rich Kleiman and Gianni Harrell in this week's Out Of Office podcast to talk about his upbringing, including dealing with the loss of his father as well as going off to military school and the trials, learning curves and ultimate accountability he faced. He also discusses his time at Oxford, later working in finance but finding himself with a sense of obligation to serve his country - a calling that ultimately led him to becoming a soldier in Afghanistan. Moore also shares his perspective of being at war in the early 2000s and his opinion on the reality of what's happening present-day in Ukraine. He also discusses leaving Afghanistan and how a chance relationship with a young man who shared his name helped shape his life's destiny. Lastly, Moore touches on how his life's work led him to becoming CEO of the Robin Hood Foundation and ultimately to his new path in politics. Show more
