President and CEO of the New York Fed John C Williams said: “Over the past year, Daleep has played a critical leadership role in the emergency facilities the Fed launched in response to Covid-19. I’m thrilled that he will continue to leverage his knowledge and expertise in support of economic policy at this important time.”
