How does this fit with your timeline? She was hired January 12, 2011.
She was hired in a transition team/start up position in Jan. 2011. Reads like she was just promoted today.
I suspect that she gave them the general’s head on a silver platter. Bet she knew EVERYTHING early on.
I take back my post, you are correct. She did have the job earlier CNS is making this sound like a new position.
I’ll read better next time.
One year - she is up for a raise!
Combine that 187,000 with Petraeus general salary plus combat pay and you get a 1 percenter.
Ahhh, that’s good to know, thx!
Ping to 20,,,sorry for the mix up
Long before she met David Petraeus , Hollister Knowlton was Army royalty. Her great-great-grandfather fought in the Civil War and the Indian Wars; her great-grandfather was a brigadier general in the Spanish-American War; her grandfather served in both world wars, earning a Silver Star in the first and rising to lieutenant colonel in the second.
Her father, William Knowlton, is a retired four-star general and NATO commander. He also was superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy, which is how, in 1973, his daughter met her future husband.
Holly was a senior at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa., visiting her parents for the weekend. A friend of her mother’s asked if she’d like to go to the football game with a cadet she knew. But when he turned out to be busy, the woman called the cadet office in search of an escort. The assignment fell to David Petraeus.
In 2010. she was invited to brief Elizabeth Warren on consumer financial problems facing the military. She says she didn’t realize the meeting was a job interview. She was hired to lead the new office and started in January 2011.

General’s wife getting to know Tampa
Sunday, May 24, 2009
A Paris-born military brat who has lived all over the world, Mrs. Petraeus experienced something uniquely Tampa in February, the Gasparilla parade. Watching the ruckus from a Bayshore Boulevard lawn as the guest of a physician and his family, she was behind a guarded fence but that was close enough.
Asked if her life had changed much since Barack Obama became president, she said not really, but that she’s looking forward to meeting Michelle Obama because they share an interest in the welfare of military families.
