Who will be the top officials in the USTR and USTR’s office?

Joshua Geltzer is set to become the Deputy U.S. Trade Representative. Geltzer was previously the Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Antitrust Division, where he led a team that prosecuted the payments and internet giants, Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo.

He has also been a member of the Bush and Obama Administration’s Fiscal Stabilization Commission (the Commission). Last year he spoke on the national debt panel.

Joshua is joined by Nicole Foss (who directs the ISS in the Antitrust Division), which gives the Office of the US Trade Representative the ability to have regulatory oversight of the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, U.S. Trade Representative, the World Trade Organization, and other leading global institutions.

There will be more naming on the names for the full team later on in the day.

Sophia Nelson is the Commission’s chief economist, Jeffrey Smith is the commission’s director, and Barbara Weltman is the commission’s secretary.
