Geithner Names Deputy at Treasury
Neal S. Wolin, another alum of the first Bob Rubin-Larry Summers tour in Washington, has been hired as deputy to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, the agency announced this morning.
Wolin, who has roots in the Clinton White House's National Security Council and Clinton's Treasury department, has spent the past few years at the Hartford Financial Services Group, first as general counsel and then as chief operating officer.
"I am thrilled to have Neal return to the department. Neal brings a deep knowledge of the Treasury Department and strong managerial experience in both the private and public sectors, and I look forward to working closely with Neal at this critical moment in our nation's history," Geithner said in a statement.
Geithner has been criticized for taking a long time to fill key positions.
Wolin worked in private practice at D.C.'s Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering. You can read an extensive professional bio here.
