As expected, William Dudley was named NY Fed Prez, and others were also named to key posts:
William C. Dudley was named today to serve as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. His appointment by the Board of Directors of the New York Fed, succeeding Timothy F. Geithner who was sworn in as Secretary of the Treasury yesterday, was approved by the Federal Reserve Board of Governors.
Stephen Friedman, chairman of the New York Fed’s Board of Directors and of the search committee that selected Mr. Dudley, said, “We were fortunate to have an exceptional slate of candidates for the post. The board is very pleased with the selection of Bill Dudley. His deep economics background, extensive working knowledge of the markets and hands-on policy making role make him an outstanding choice to succeed Tim Geithner.”
