Michael Froman

U.S. Trade Reprentative

Michael Froman believes in maintaining a level playing field when it comes to international trading. As United States Trade Representative, Froman is President Obama’s principal advisor, negotiator and spokesperson on international trade and investment issues. A key initiative under his leadership are the controversial negotiations of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement in the Asia Pacific, which Froman asserts are the most transparent trade negotiations that have ever taken place. He continues to work towards enforcing America’s rights in the global trading system and fostering development through trade. 

Prior to joining the Obama Administration, Froman served in a number of roles at Citigroup and as a Senior Fellow at the Council of Foreign Relations and a Resident Fellow at the German Marshall Fund.
