Zerzan will direct Isda’s public policy strategies and initiatives on a global basis, including developing and co-ordinating Isda’s activities relating to regulatory and legislative issues. Washington-based Zerzan will also chair Isda’s US regulatory committee and report to Robert Pickel, Isda’s chief executive. “Greg brings a wealth of experience across a broad range of public policy issues affecting private negotiated swaps,” said Pickel. “His leadership and expertise will help to strengthen Isda’s mission to encourage the prudent and efficient development of our business.” Zerzan has served as acting assistant secretary and deputy assistant secretary at the US Treasury in the past few years, where he helped to create and implement economic and financial services policy for the administration of President Bush. Zerzan has managed various Treasury offices and initiatives, including overseeing the terrorism risk insurance programme and the office of financial institutions, as well as helping create policy on government-sponsored enterprises.
