Bob Rubin PEU

Robert Rubin, former Treasury Chief and CitiGroup Chairman, will join Centerview Partners, an advisory and private equity firm based in New York. His role will be part-time counselor.

Centerview was formed in 2006 by three former Wall Street executives. They currently advise the government on AIG and a founder suggested temporary corporate tax relief in an op-ed.

The boutique firm has a private equity division. Bob Rubin joins legions of ex-government officials as a private equity underwriter (PEU). Is cuddling in his job description?
