Powell’s term as a member of the Fed’s board will end Jan. 31, 2028.

The three-decade financial services veteran previously worked at Bankers Trust and Carlyle Group.

He also also held assistant secretary and undersecretary roles at the Treasury Department, and served as a lawyer and an investment banker in New York City.
