The Cato Institute welcomes Peter Goettler, a former managing director at Barclays Capital, as its new President and CEO, effective April 1. Current CEO John Allison is retiring after more than two exemplary years on the job. “Peter Goettler is an accomplished business executive who can speak powerfully, write convincingly, and has the leadership skills to take Cato’s outstanding team to an even higher impact level. We are very fortunate to have him as Cato’s new President and CEO. He has the talent to make a great organization even better,” said Allison.
