Dr. Coronado is President and Founder of MacroPolicy Perspectives LLC (MPP), an economic research consulting firm, and has served in that position since 2017. She is also currently a Clinical Associate Professor of Finance at the University of Texas at Austin, an Executive in Residence for Rutgers Business School and serves on the Pension Research Council at the Wharton School, the Economic Advisory Panel of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and the Economic Studies Council at The Brookings Institution. Prior to founding MPP, Dr. Coronado served as Chief Economist for Graham Capital Management from 2014 to 2017, as Chief Economist, North America and a Managing Director at BNP Paribas from 2009 to 2014, and as a Senior U.S. Economist and Director at Barclays Capital from 2006 to 2009. Earlier in her career, she served as an Economist at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and served on the Treasury Markets Practices Group at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Dr. Coronado also served on the independent advisory board of the Company’s Protiviti Inc. subsidiary from March 2018 until her election to the Board of Directors on March 15, 2019.
