Cornell Teague joined the Alpine Group as a Vice President, after spending seven years as a Professional Staff Member on the House Appropriations Committee, including the last three with the Subcommittee on Defense, where he was the primary staff member responsible for the oversight of the Department of Defense’s operations accounts, an annual expenditure exceeding $240 billion across the Services. As a senior advisor, Cornell traveled to the Middle East, Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa, the Korean Peninsula, Ukraine, throughout the European continent, and several other places where the United States Military has an enduring presence, providing him with uncommon insight into the unique convergence between our Nation’s national security and fiscal policy objectives.
Before joining the Defense Subcommittee, Cornell worked for the House Appropriations Committee, Homeland Security Subcommittee, focusing primarily on cybersecurity and transportation security. He has also worked in The White House, serving President George W. Bush at the Homeland Security Council and USA Freedom Corps.
Cornell holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky and received his Master of Business Administration at George Mason University. He participated in 114th Congress’ John C. Stennis Fellows Program for Public Service, a bipartisan, bicameral leadership program for senior staff in the U.S. Congress, and he currently serves on The Fund for American Studies’ Board of Visitors.
Cornell is an occasional angler and a frequent runner, having participated in many organized races, including the Marine Corps Marathon, Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, Army Ten-Miler, G.W. Parkway Classic, and too many Turkey Trots to recount. In addition to long runs, he enjoys short lines, hard facts, soft landings, and time spent with family. He lives in McLean, Virginia with his wife and two children.
