Among qualifications: experience working with consumer groups, regulatory agencies, legislative entities pertaining to credit extension, credit scoring, credit data for financial services and insurance.

Buncha’ deadbeats.

A little closer to home – American Express Co.Director of Public Affairs – providing internal and external communications support to the Risk, Information Management & Banking Group and Chief Risk Officer – New York.

This is a little outside our usual universe of lobbyist, flack and do-gooder opportunities, but some of you probably have the right skill set for Conference Director (search job # MAR00001815) with Thomson Reuters.
