Ex-IRS Chief’s New Gig

ARCHIVES

Doug Shulman, who completed his term as Internal Revenue Service commissioner in November, has new digs.

In a year where Congress may take up historic tax reform, Shulman is becoming a guest scholar at the Brookings Institution, Government Executive learned after a reporter bumped into him Thursday on Washington’s 19th Street Northwest.

Before being named by President George W. Bush in 2007 to be the 47th IRS commissioner, Shulman ran consulting firms and was vice chairman of the private-sector Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. In the 1990s, he was chief of staff at the National Commission on Restructuring the Internal Revenue Service, and later a private-equity investor at Darby Investments.

With degrees from Williams College, Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government and Georgetown University Law Center, Shulman also co-founded Teach for America.

Charlie Clark joined Government Executive in the fall of 2009. He has been on staff at The Washington Post, Congressional Quarterly, National Journal, Time-Life Books, Tax Analysts, the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, and the National Center on Education and the Economy. He has written or edited online news, daily news stories, long features, wire copy, magazines, books and organizational media strategies.
