The board of the US Federal Reserve has appointed Stacey Tevlin as director of the division of research and statistics.

Tevlin, currently an associate director of the division, succeeds David Wilcox, who recently retired as director of the division after 30 years of service with the Federal Reserve board.

Tevlin will have oversight on economic analysis, forecasting, and research related to the domestic economy and financial markets, several major economic measurement programs such as industrial production and the survey of consumer finances, and research and analysis in support of the Federal Reserve's financial stability, supervision, and regulatory activities. She will also be responsible for briefing the Federal Open Market Committee on the US economic outlook.

"Stacey brings many years of leadership and research experience, a keen understanding of the US economy, and extensive public service at the Federal Reserve to the position of division director," said Jerome Powell, board chairman of the Federal Reserve.

Tevlin started at the board in 1995 as an economist in the division of monetary affairs and held a number of positions in the division of research and statistics leading teams of economists helping to produce the staff's forecast of the US economy.
