Ally Financial announced Tuesday that it has appointed Josh Wilsusen to head the company's Washington office as its new managing director for public policy and government affairs.
Wilsusen most recently served as executive director of government relations at Morgan Stanley where he represented the company both on Capitol Hill and at federal banking agencies regarding securities and banking issues.
While at Morgan Stanley, Wilsusen also served as co-chair of the Structured Finance Industry Group's government relations subcommittee.
“Josh's experience in financial services and on Capitol Hill is perfectly suited to advancing the public-policy interests of Ally and our customers,” general counsel for Ally Financial Scott Stengel said in a news release.
“He embodies our innovative spirit and commitment to 'doing it right' and will focus on championing political solutions that benefit communities across Ally's nationwide footprint.”
In his new role, Wilsusen will oversee its public-policy strategy and direct its advocacy and outreach to executive, legislative and other political bodies and officials at all levels of government, according to Ally.
Wilsusen served as securities counsel to former U.S. House Financial Services Committee chairman Michael Oxley prior to Morgan Stanley.
