Karen Dunn Kelley, undersecretary for economic affairs at the Commerce Department, has been appointed to perform the nonexclusive duties and functions of the deputy secretary of commerce.

The department said Wednesday Kelley’s appointment was made in accordance with the Vacancies Reform Act and after the retirement of Ellen Herbst, who previously performed the deputy secretary’s responsibilities on a nonexclusive basis.

“Karen has decades of experience in the private sector managing diverse operations in addition to her leadership of the Economic and Statistics Administration,” said Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

Kelley is a 35-year financial industry veteran who has spent majority of her career at global investment firm Invesco.

She also served on the boards at Carlow University, Magee Women’s Research Institute and Shady Side Academy.
