Kim N. Wallace was confirmed by the United States Senate Friday to serve as Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs. As Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Legislative Affairs, Wallace will advise Treasury Secretary Geithner on legislative strategy, communicate Treasury's priorities to Congress and keep the Department informed of Congressional objectives and concerns.

"I am delighted to have Kim as part of our team. As the United States confronts a historic economic crisis, close coordination with Congress is essential to getting our economy back on track and Americans back to work. Kim is a trusted voice both at Treasury and on Capitol Hill," said Treasury Secretary Geithner.

Before coming to Treasury, Wallace was a Managing Director and head of the Washington Research Group at Barclays Capital. Previously, he served in the same position at Lehman Brothers Inc. until 1994.    From 1989-1994, Wallace was a legislative aide for fiscal policy to then-Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and worked as an analyst on the Senate Budget Committee, under then-Chairman Lawton Chiles.

He holds an M.S. in Business from Johns Hopkins University and a B.A. in Government from the University of Texas at Austin. Wallace is married to Robin Vink and has two children, Harrison and Ava.
