WASHINGTON —The Atlantic Council today named internationally-recognized economist Megan Greene as a senior fellow in its Global Business and Economics Program. Greene has a multi-disciplinary background that places her at the nexus between politics, economics, and finance.

"Megan is among the next generation of thought leaders on global economics and finance who will bring our work to new audiences," said Frederick Kempe, Atlantic Council president and CEO. "I am pleased to welcome Megan to the Atlantic Council at such an important time for the United States, Europe, and the transatlantic relationship."

As a senior fellow with the Council, Greene will provide analysis and develop policy recommendations on issues related to European financial and economic stability and growth —with a particular focus on the Eurozone crisis—to expand on the initiatives of the Council’s Global Business and Economics Program. This program is at the center of the Council’s work on transatlantic and global economic, regulatory, and trade issues, applying a nonpartisan, public-private sector approach to creating jobs, growth, and prosperity and sustaining open market systems.

Greene is the chief economist at Maverick Intelligence, which advises governments and companies on political, policy, and macroeconomic developments. She also writes a weekly column with Bloomberg.

Previously, Greene was the director of European economic research at Roubini Global Economics, the Eurozone crisis expert at the Economist Intelligence Unit, and advisor to the Liechtenstein royal family. She is a graduate of Princeton University and of Nuffield College, Oxford University.

Greene is the latest addition to the Council’s growing Global Business and Economics team following Georgetown Law professor Chris Brummer’s appointment as the C. Boyden Gray Fellow on Global Finance and Growth and project director for the Transatlantic Finance Initiative.
