Change we can believe in. Like others, I’ve been very concerned that the White House hasn’t listened enough to what investment bankers need and want.
Former Treasury official Roger Altman is among the candidates being considered to replace Larry Summers as director of President Barack Obama’s National Economic Council, a White House official said.
Altman, who is founder and chairman of Evercore Partners, a New York-based boutique investment bank, met Obama at the White House on Tuesday, the official said.
The official stressed that the process of picking a new NEC director, who coordinates economic policy for the president, was in an early stage.
