Colin Powell, Former Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Dies at 84

We are saddened to hear of the passing of General Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.). NACD was honored to benefit from his wisdom as a featured speaker at our 2020 Summit.

General Powell devoted his life to public service and was the first Black chair of the Joint Chiefs and the first Black Secretary of State. He held senior military and diplomatic positions across four presidential administrations, and he also served as a corporate director on numerous boards. General Powell’s deep commitment to democratic values and freedom has been felt throughout the world and will be an ongoing inspiration.

Colin Powell, who as a retired four-star general and former White House national security adviser went on to serve as the first Black secretary of state, has died at 84.
