Lieber will lead Eurasia Group's coverage of political and policy developments in Washington.
NEW YORK, 30 March – Jon Lieber, former principal at PwC, has rejoined Eurasia Group as managing director for the United States. Lieber previously led United States coverage at the firm from 2016 to 2017.
Based in Washington, DC, Lieber will lead the firm's coverage of political and policy developments in the US capital.
“At a time of unprecedented volatility in US domestic politics, the need for sharp, strategic insights is clear,” said Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group. “We are delighted that our clients will again benefit from Jon's deep expertise and market-relevant analysis at this critical juncture.”
As part of Eurasia Group's expanded US politics coverage, the firm has also partnered with Ipsos, one of the top global public opinion firms, to offer clients exclusive analysis that weds Ipsos data analytics and polling expertise with Eurasia Group's experience in covering both the US primaries and the general election.
At PwC, Lieber was a principal in the National Economics and Statistics group. He has extensive experience in government working as an economist at the House Ways and Means Committee, an associate director at the National Economic Council at the White House, and a senior economic policy advisor to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. In these roles, Lieber has advised senior elected officials, staff, and business leaders on a wide range of policy areas, negotiated spending and tax packages with the Obama administration, and shepherded several significant trade agreements through Congress.
Lieber holds a master's degree in economics and a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Tufts University. (Full bio
