Geduldig also worked as a lawyer and government relations representative for a variety of banks as well as for the CEOs of large financial services firms.

In addition, she is a former deputy assistant secretary for legislative affairs at the Treasury Department. There, she took charge of domestic financial services issues, and terrorist finance and asset tracking.

“Courtney comes to our team with a very strong résumé and background in the banking and financial services sector,” said Corker, a former mayor, state finance commissioner and entrepreneur.

Geduldig is 32 years old and is from Baltimore. She received a bachelor’s degree in English in 1997 from the University of Maryland and earned her law degree from the University of Baltimore in 2001.

She started her job with Corker on March 17.
