Revolving Door: U.S. Government to Albright Stonebridge

Crain's Detroit Business reported:

Veteran Detroit lawyer Nicole Lamb-Hale has joined Madeleine Albright's Washington, D.C., advisory firm.

Lamb-Hale joined Albright Stonebridge Group in May after stepping down from her position as assistant secretary of commerce for manufacturing and services at the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration. She previously served as deputy general counsel for the department.

In her new role, she'll serve as a liaison between U.S. regulators and clients looking to make foreign investments
Madeleine Albright has a private equity underwriter within her corporate umbrella, Albright Capital Management.  Will Mrs. Lamb-Hale aid Madeleine's PEU in this role?   Can Lamb-Hale say African power?

Oddly, a Carlyle Group executive was the lead story on Crain's page.  Albright headlined Carlyle's annual investor meeting several years ago.  It's a small PEU world.
