Donald Kohn is a leading economist and one of the world’s foremost authorities on monetary policy, financial regulation and macroeconomics.

He served at the Federal Reserve for four decades, joining the Board in 2002 and taking on the role of Vice Chairman from 2006 to 2010. Prior to this he was Advisor to the Board for Monetary Policy (2001–02), Secretary of the Federal Open Market Committee (1987–2002), Director of the Division of Monetary Affairs (1987–2001), and Deputy Staff Director for Monetary and Financial Policy (1983–87).
