Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan was recently named as the new chairman of the Financial Services Forum, a non-partisan policy organization comprised of CEOs from 18 of the largest U.S. financial services firms.
“Our companies serve customers and clients in every sector and region of the United States,” Moynihan said. “The Forum will continue to share the perspectives we gain from those relationships with policymakers in Washington to help ensure the U.S. economy remains strong and competitive.”
Moynihan will succeed Goldman Sachs Chairman and CEO Lloyd Blankfein as head of the forum, which seeks “to pursue policies that encourage savings and investment, promote an open and competitive global marketplace and ensure the opportunity of people everywhere to participate fully and productively in the 21st-century global economy.”
“Brian is an outstanding choice to lead the Forum’s executive membership and we look forward to his leadership during this critical time in Washington,” Rob Nichols, the president and CEO of the Financial Services Forum, said.
