For someone in the private sector, Braverman has done more than most to shape the public one. During his 15-year tenure at McKinsey he co-founded and directed the firm's practice on government innovation, consulted with the Obama-Biden transition team, advised several presidential campaigns, and assisted the prime minister of Haiti in the aftermath of the country's 2010 earthquakes. Uber-connected in the highest echelons of politics--Chelsea Clinton is a friend--Braverman made the jump to the Clinton Foundation in July, 2013. Following a report criticizing the charity, Bill Clinton pointed specifically to Braverman's appointment as a sign that things were improving. "We have strengthened our foundation's leadership and structure," the former President told the paper.
