Nov 16 Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy
Geithner is joining private-equity firm Warburg Pincus, the Wall
Street Journal reported on Saturday.
Geithner, who played a major role in combating the global
financial crisis during the four years he served as Treasury
secretary, will join the New York-based firm in March as
president and managing director, the newspaper reported Geithner
as saying in an interview.
Geithner stepped down as Treasury secretary in January and
is credited with helping to calm the financial storm that swept
through Wall Street in 2007-2009.
Reuters was not immediately able to contact Geithner or
Warburg Pincus for comment.
