The Bipartisan Policy Center announced Wednesday that Perdue would work "to bring pragmatic state-based perspectives to national issues."

Perdue, a Republican, was governor of Georgia from 2003 to 2011 after serving 11 years as a state senator. He currently works as a founding partner of Perdue Partners LLC, an Atlanta-based global trading company.

Perdue joins roster of five Governors' Council members, including: former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, former Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas, former Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry, former South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds, and former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland.

The Bipartisan Policy Center was founded in 2007 by former Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole and George Mitchell.
