Traub leaves House of Representatives for Deloitte
Deloitte has hired Jonathan Traub, former staff director for the Committee on Ways and Means of the US House of Representatives, for its Washington National Tax practice.
Traub will lead a team that will identify, evaluate and monitor legislative proposals, and interpret the practical issues about the application of tax proposals on behalf of Deloitte's clients. He succeeds Clint Stretch, who is retiring.
Since 2008, Traub has been the Republican staff director for the Committee on Ways and Means. He played a key role in the Tax Relief Act of 2010 and the Budget Control Act (debt limit increase, 2011). He was also deeply involved in the work of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, better known as the Super Committee.
Before his time in the House of Representatives, Traub was vice president for tax legislation at the Securities Industry Association.
