Director, Global Strategic Analysis
The Eurasia Group
Caitlin Dean leads a team of analysts that examine political risk from global, country, and sectoral perspectives to assess implications for multinational corporations and institutions. Previously, she was an engagement manager on Eurasia Group's consulting team, overseeing bespoke projects that helped clients incorporate international macro risk into their strategic planning through scopes including market assessment and prioritization, scenario planning, government relations, and market entry.
Before joining Eurasia Group, Caitlin was a strategy consultant with PwC; worked on US Senator Dick Durbin's foreign policy and defense policy staff; and covered political, economic, and business issues for Dow Jones Newswires' Brussels bureau. She also launched international education projects including an outdoor youth teambuilding nonprofit and a summer program for Yale University.
Caitlin earned a master of business administration from the Yale School of Management and a bachelor's degree in political science and international studies from Yale College. She is fluent in French and understands basic Dutch. A former Belgian Girl Guide, Caitlin is happiest when outdoors—she has biked across the US, survived in the desert with primitive gear, and dogsledded across the Boundary Waters.
