Previously, as former director of the World Economic Roundtable, Molavi led an ambitious effort to re-map the global economy, focusing on "The New Silk Road as one of the great geopolitical opportunities of the 21st century.

A powerhouse journalist, Molavi's credits include Reuters, The Washington Post, and the Financial Times. A frequent media commentator, he has appeared on leading outlets such as CNN, the BBC, and NPR, and his articles and op-eds are frequently featured in publications including The New York Times, The Economist, Businessweek, Institutional Investor and the New Republic. He is the critically acclaimed author of "The Soul of Iran", called a "must-read" by renowned journalist and TIME’s editor-at-large, Fareed Zakaria.
