WASHINGTON Feb 21 Andrew Olmem, an attorney and
former Republican Congressional aide, has joined the White House
National Economic Council as a deputy to Gary Cohn, said two
sources familiar with the move.
Olmem, an attorney to the Senate Banking Committee during
the financial crisis, left his job at Venable LLC last week,
said the law firm.
Olmem was a leading staff negotiator working on the
Dodd-Frank Act that reformed Wall Street in 2010, according to a
"Mr. Olmem was particularly involved with its provisions
dealing with the regulation and resolution of systemic financial
institutions, Federal Reserve liquidity programs, financial
regulatory structure, and prudential regulation of financial
institutions," according to the profile.
