Timothy Geithner heads to CFR (Council on Foreign Relations)
Former Treasury secretary Timothy Geithner will join the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) as a distinguished fellow, the think tank has announced.
Geithner served as treasury secretary for President Obama’s entire first term, playing a key role in formulating U.S. domestic and international economic policy, including being credited with what some considered to be controversial measures to avert economic collapse.
“Both at Treasury and at the New York Federal Reserve, Tim was a tireless, creative, and responsible custodian of the public trust. His coming to CFR only strengthens our capacity to produce thoughtful analysis of issues at the intersection of economic, political, and strategic developments,” said CFR President Richard N. Haass in a statement.
