Timothy Geithner, comparatively young for the position of President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York at 42, rose rapidly after joining the US Treasury in 1988, emerging as a key figure during the 1990s international financial crises and becoming international under-secretary in 1998. He joined the IMF in 2001 following the change of US administration and is well known on the international economics circuit.
