Former treasury official is guest speaker

Former Assistant Treasury Secretary Neel Kashkari will be the keynote speaker at the release of the 2014 “Sacramento Business Review” at noon Tuesday, Jan. 21, in California State University, Sacramento’s University Union Ballroom.

The event will include an overview of forecasts for business sectors throughout the region, followed by a question-and-answer session at 1 p.m. and Kashkari’s address at 1:10 p.m.

Kashkari joined the Treasury as a senior adviser under President George W. Bush in 2006. When the financial crisis erupted, he was confirmed as assistant secretary of the Treasury and helped to write the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act.

He remained at the Treasury after President Barack Obama took office, returning to California in 2009 to become managing director and head of Global Equities at PIMCO, which helps public employees meet their retirement goals. He recently left PIMCO to pursue other opportunities in public service.

Tickets are $45 per person or $350 for a table of eight. Lunch will be served.
