ATLANTA (AP) - The Carter Center has named a veteran United Nations administrator to serve as its vice president of peace programs.

Officials say Jordan Ryan has been named to the post after 24 years with the UN. Officials say Ryan served in developing countries and in post-crisis settings.

Carter Center CEO Mary Ann Peters said in a statement that Ryan’s experience working in nations rebuilding from conflict and establishing democracy will serve him well in his new role. Officials say Ryan has served in Liberia and Vietnam.

Ryan earned a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Yale University, a law degree from Georgetown University and a master’s degree from the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs.
