Foreign Service careers topic for July 30 lecture at BYU

Brigham Young University students can get an inside look at careers in the U.S. Foreign Service during a lecture Monday, July 30, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark building.

David W. Simons, deputy management counselor at the U.S. Mission to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Brussels, Belgium, has been a Foreign Service Officer since 1996 and has served at U.S. embassies in Athens, Greece; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; and Caracas, Venezuela.

Prior to joining the Department of State, Simons held successive positions with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management as an investigator, area representative and personnel management specialist, which afforded him the opportunity to travel widely throughout the Rocky Mountains and Southwestern United States, with duty stations in Salt Lake City, Phoenix and Denver.

Following a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in France and the West Indies, Simons attended the University of Utah, graduating cum laude with bachelor’s degrees in economics and political science. He received a master’s degree in international management from the American Graduate School of International Management.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies events, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
