The American Securitization Forum has retained Mike Williams as a senior policy advisor.
Williams served as managing director in the public policy division at Credit Suisse before launching The Williams Group earlier this year.
“We are extremely pleased Mike is joining our team,” Tom Deutsch, executive director of the ASF, said in a press release. “Having worked with Mike at ASF for nearly a decade, I’ve seen firsthand his substantial talents in formulating and implementing legislative and regulatory strategies for major institutions and he has direct understanding of the issues and concerns of our broad-base of members.”
Before joining Credit Suisse, Mr. Williams was senior vice president at The Bond Market Association, a predecessor to Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, where he was responsible for representing the trade group before legislators and regulators, as well as overseeing relationships with state and local policymakers. Before that, Williams was special assistant to the president and staff director for legislative affairs during the Clinton Administration. He also served as a deputy assistant in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
