Judd Gregg, the former Republican senator from New Hampshire, is joining the investment bank Goldman Sachs as an international adviser, the company announced Friday.
“Judd Gregg’s experience and insight will contribute significantly to our firm and our continuing focus on supporting economic growth,” Goldman Sachs chairman and CEO Lloyd C. Blankfein said in a statement announcing the move.
“A strong financial sector is critical to our nation and one of the key engines of job creation in our country,” Gregg said in the statement. “I hope that I can bring to Goldman Sachs some ideas and perspectives that will help the firm continue to be a leader in supporting its clients in their pursuit of the capital, credit and advice they need to be successful.”
Gregg served three terms in the Senate and is a former two-term governor of New Hampshire. He served as chairman and ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee and also as ranking member of the Senate Appropriations Foreign Operations Subcommittee.
