Tuck School of Business Welcomes BlackRock Executive as Senior Fellow

tuckDartmouth’s Tuck School of Business this month welcomed a top BlackRock Investment Institute executive as a senior fellow at its Center for Global Business and Government, the school announced last week. Peter Fisher, BlackRock senior director and a former top Treasury Department official, joined Tuck on July 1st. He will hold the position while continuing his work with BlackRock.

At Tuck, Fisher will work with the center to build on Tuck’s connections to experts in the private and public sectors. He will also oversee research and analysis projects conducted by MBA students on topics at the intersection of business and government, and he will expand opportunities for Tuck MBA students and alumni who are interested in areas such as financial markets, public finance and monetary policy.

Praising Fisher’s addition to the center, Matthew Slaughter, faculty director of the center and Tuck associate dean of faculty, noted that he brings valuable real-world experience about how both investors and government policy makers think about complex economic issues. “Peter’s presence will give Tuck students access to someone with experience at the highest levels of both private asset management and government economic policy,” he said in a statement.

Fisher joined BlackRock in 2004, served as chairman of BlackRock Asia from 2005 to 2007, and led its fixed income business, managing a 450-person team and overseeing management of portfolios of more than $1.3 trillion, before becoming senior director this past February. Before BlackRock, he served as the Treasury Department’s undersecretary for domestic finance from 2001 to 2003, and before that he spent 16 years at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

As a senior fellow at Tuck’s Center for Global Business and Government, he joins former U.S. Senator Judd Gregg, R-N.H., former Gov. John Lynch, D-N.H., and former White House speechwriter Matthew Rees.
