MEET THE SPEAKER
In March 2009, US President Barack Obama announced that G.

and Budget to implement the economic stimulus package to drive the
US Economy out of the GFC.
In this position, DeSeve served as a special adviser to
President Obama and assistant to Vice President Joe Biden, focused
on managing interagency efforts to address provisions of the 2009
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. That work, the White House

of the Recovery Act Accountability and Transparency Board.
Previously Edward served as Managing Director of Merrill Lynch
Capital Markets and was a Lecturer at the University of
Pennsylvania; Senior Fellow at the University of Maryland and CEO
of Strategy and Solution Partners. He was deputy director for
management at OMB during the latter part of President Clinton's
term in office. During DeSeve's tenure, he was a key player in
coordinating the federal response to the Y2K computer issue.
Before serving at OMB, DeSeve was the chief financial officer at
the Department of Housing and Urban Development from 1993 to 1994.
Prior to that, he worked in the financial services industry in the
private sector. DeSeve also has worked for the city of Philadelphia
