President Barack Obama on Friday appointed Caroline Atkinson, a former journalist who has worked at the International Monetary Fund, the U.S. Treasury Department and the Bank of England, to be deputy national security adviser for international economics.
Atkinson will take the position vacated by Michael Froman, who became the U.S. trade representative. She will serve as the president’s senior international economic adviser, the White House said in a statement.
Atkinson is currently special assistant to the president on international economic affairs, a job she took in August 2011. She has played a key role in the administration’s response to the European economic crisis and in U.S. interactions at Group of Eight and Group of 20 summits of industrialized nations and emerging market economies, the White House said.
