The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond has hired Kim Zeuli as assistant vice president of Community Affairs for the Fifth District, effective March 2, 2009. Zeuli will lead a professional staff engaged in economic research and analysis, as well as program and policy development for community development initiatives. She also will counsel Bank leadership on emerging issues in this field.
"I have always been passionate about community development issues," said Zeuli. "I look forward to applying my economics background and work experience to enhance research and outreach activities for the Federal Reserve. I am excited to help shape an innovative vision for this group, particularly during this downturn in the economy."
Zeuli has worked on community development issues both internationally and domestically. Before joining the Fed, she was a professor in the University of Wisconsin's Agricultural and Applied Economics Department and associate director of the Center for Cooperatives in Madison, Wis. Most recently she was a research director and business consultant with the Corporate Executive Board, Business Leadership Forum, in Washington, D.C.
"We have hired a well-qualified community affairs officer who will lead us in adopting a clear strategic vision for the function, and one that will strengthen our communications, analysis and research capabilities," said Marsha Shuler, Richmond regional executive and senior vice president of Community Affairs and Public Affairs.
A graduate of Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Zeuli earned a masters and doctorate in applied economics from the University of Minnesota, St. Paul, Minn.
