HSS Trustee Tapped to Aid Ailing Economy

The Wall Street Journal—July 21, 2008

Kendrick R. Wilson III, member of the Hospital for Special Surgery board of trustees, was tapped by Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson to help him brainstorm ideas to correct the current problems plaguing the economy: the bank failures, lending problems and troubles of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, according to a recent article published in the Wall Street Journal.

Wilson is taking the unpaid job on leave from his position as a banker for Goldman Sachs, to which he will return on Jan. 1. In the past, he has advised such companies as Bank of America, Wachovia and National City. Wilson is also a Co-Chair of the Building on Success Campaign for the Future of HSS, which is a campaign to raise capital support for the expansion of the hospital and the growth of a robust research program.
