WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the Financial Services Forum (Forum) announced the appointment of Kevin Fromer as its new President and CEO.  In his new role, Fromer will lead the Forum to promote a healthy financial system that supports economic growth and opportunity for all Americans.

“Our members serve our clients each day with the capabilities we bring to help them compete, produce jobs, and drive the economy forward,” said Forum Chairman and Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan. “Kevin has the experience to help us as we engage with policymakers on the best ways to promote growth and maintain financial stability.”

“I am honored and eager to join the Financial Services Forum, an organization uniquely positioned to advocate for policies that will help the economy and encourage a competitive global marketplace,” said Fromer.

Prior to Treasury, Fromer worked on Capitol Hill as Assistant to the Speaker of the House of Representatives for Policy, Chief of Staff to U.S. Representative Harold Rogers (R-KY), and associate staff of the House Appropriations Committee.
