A Second Obama Administration Alum Aligns With This Fund Firm
A Chicago-based mutual fund shop just added a second Obama administration alumnus to its board.
Another Obama administration veteran, former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, joined the Ariel board five months ago, in October 2016.
The Chicago Tribune and Crain's Chicago Business both reported on Jarrett's appointment.
Rogers notes that Jarrett's father, James Bowman, "was one of [Ariel's] original directors until his death."
"There is a great sense of symmetry and continuity with Valerie joining our board," Rogers states.
Both Jarrett and Duncan held high profile Chicago roles before they joined the Obama administration in 2009. And Rogers, in turn, has longstanding ties to Obama.
