Former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster has joined the board at the video conferencing company Zoom.
According to Fox News:
Former Trump national security adviser H.R. McMaster joined Zoom as an independent director, the virtual conferencing platform announced Wednesday.
Zoom CEO Eric Yuan said Wednesday that McMaster is “a welcome addition” to the company’s board.
“During his decorated military career, he has built an expertise in leading through challenging situations and has demonstrated tremendous strength of character,” Yuan said in a statement Wednesday. “His leadership will be invaluable as Zoom continues to enable people to connect on a global scale.”
McMaster is the highest-profile government official to join Zoom, which has reportedly been looking to strengthen its ties and contacts in Washington D.C. amid the coronavirus pandemic. It has become an enormously popular platform for businesses during lockdowns that have forced many employees to work remotely.
McMaster replaces former NSA Michal Flynn and was preceded by John Bolton.
