Join Michael B. Greenwald, CCAS BA '06, for a conversation on his career journey and opportunities, for those interested in the financial industry, both public and private sector. Light refreshments will be served.
Greenwald previously worked in senior roles within the U.S. Department of Treasury in positions working with Africa and Europe, and served as a financial diplomat in the Middle East spanning the tenures of U.S. Treasury Secretaries Geithner, Lew and Mnuchin. Most recently, he served as the first U.S. Treasury Attaché appointed to Qatar and Kuwait and opened the Treasury Department’s office in Doha, Qatar in August 2015. Prior to that role, Greenwald served as the U.S. Treasury Policy Advisor for Europe. Greenwald was part of the U.S. Treasury team that crafted U.S. sanctions against Russia, the largest U.S. sanctions program to date, and negotiated similar sanctions by Europe.
He has also served in a variety of roles in the U.S. Intelligence Community and in the Office of General Council at the U.S Treasury, working closely with the National Security Council at the White House on issues related to countering ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, Iran, Ukraine/Russia, Syria, and North Korea.
Since leaving the U.S. Government in July 2017, Greenwald serves as Managing Director for Tiedemann Constantia and SVP for Tiedemann Advisors. He leads Tiedemann Constantia’s business development strategy focused on the Middle East and provides geopolitical and macroeconomic guidance to the firm and clients. He serves as a trusted advisor and manages senior relationships with family offices in the Middle East, Europe, and the United States.
