About the Speaker
Feulner’s leadership has been internationally recognized. The Daily Telegraph (UK) named him one of the 100 most influential conservatives in America in 2007 and 2010. Feulner first joined The Heritage Foundation as a founding trustee in 1973, becoming president in 1977. He travels more than 150,000 miles a year, crisscrossing the United States and the globe to meet with leaders and help spread the ideals of individual liberty, economic freedom, rule of law, and family values.
He graduated from Regis University with a bachelor’s degree in English, and received an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business in 1964. He later attended Georgetown University and the London School of Economics, and then earned a doctorate degree at the University of Edinburgh in 1981.
Feulner began his Washington career as Public Affairs Fellow for the Center for Strategic Studies and at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, where he wrote on subjects such as trade with the Soviet Union. He later became a confidential assistant to Rep. and later Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird. Afterward, Feulner became Chief of Staff to Rep. Philip M. Crane. Before joining Heritage as its President, Feulner was Executive Director of the Republican Study Committee.
Feulner is the author of seven books: Getting America Right (2006), Leadership for America (2000), Intellectual Pilgrims (1999), The March of Freedom (1998), Conservatives Stalk the House (1983), Looking Back (1981) and Trading with the Communists (1968).
