Neal S. Wolin was confirmed by the United States Senate late Monday to serve as the Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Treasury
Wolin appears to have Israeli, CIA and Larry Summers connections.
His mother was a director of the Israel Experience, a program at the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago that helps young adults visit Israel.
He worked under three directors at the CIA: William H. Webster, Robert M. Gates and R. James Woolsey. In 1993, Wolin moved to the NSA as a legal adviser.
Wolin then moved to the Treasury for six years, first under Robert Rubin and then becoming general counsel to Secretary Lawrence H. Summers in 1999. In January 2001, Summers gave Wolin the Alexander Hamilton Award, the highest honor awarded to a Treasury official.
After leaving the Treasury, he worked as essentially in house lobbyist for The Hartford. His bio page at The Hartford has suddenly gone blank.
