WASHINGTON, D.C.— Anton Becker, Communications Director at Better Markets, released the following statement on Washingtonian Magazine selection of Better Markets co-founder, CEO and President, Dennis Kelleher, as one of the most influential people shaping policy in the banking and finance policy areas for the second year in a row:
“Better Markets congratulates our co-founder, CEO and President, Dennis Kelleher, for being chosen for the second year in a row by Washingtonian Magazine as one of the most influential people shaping policy in the banking and finance policy areas. It is noteworthy that, of the most influential people chosen, Dennis is the only public interest nonprofit leader in Washington, DC selected in the banking and finance policy areas.
“Washingtonian said it ‘sought out smart, innovative people who care about the issues and spend a lot of time thinking about them. They have deep subject-matter expertise and significant understanding of how DC works, with the goal of getting action. They comprehend policy’s nuances and complexities.’ That’s why Washingtonian concluded that these are the people ‘who shape the laws that govern the country and ultimately affect the course of history.’
“That’s what Dennis does in leading the Better Markets’ team in fighting for economic and financial systems that support the productive economy, generate broad-based growth, and ensure that the American Dream is available to all Main Street families. We congratulate him on this recognition.”
