Having worked at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, King brings multiple perspectives to developing strategies for clients and helping them solve complex problems. People and policy are what excite King most about his work at Mindset, and he thrives on building and maintaining relationships across the political spectrum.
King came to Mindset from Dome Advisors, which he co-founded to provide investment managers with actionable insight into policy decisions in Washington. He previously served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Banking & Finance in the US Treasury Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs during the financial crisis of 2008, where he represented the Secretary and other senior department officials before congressional members and their staffs in efforts to pass such landmark legislation as the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (leading to the conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) and the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act (authorizing Troubled Asset Relief Program [TARP]).
Prior to the Treasury, King served as a policy aide and tax counsel to Senate Minority Whip Trent Lott (R-MS), a prominent member of the Senate Finance Committee. Prior to that, he was a policy advisor to the majority House Republican Conference.
King received his BA from the College of Charleston and his JD/MBA from the University of South Carolina.
