Sifma Adds New Members to Federal Advocacy Team

Jennifer Bang and Amena Ross will be responsible for federal government relations.


The Securities Industry and Financial Markets (Sifma) has added two new members to its federal advocacy team.

Jennifer Bang and Amena Ross were appointed as managing directors of the team and will be responsible for federal government relations. They will both be reporting to Sifma’s head of federal government and international affairs Mark Schuermann.

Bang joins the organization from the Treasury Department where she was the deputy assistant secretary within the Office of Legislative Affairs. Prior to working at the Treasury Department, she was a principal at Capitol Counsel and worked as a legislative director for former congressman Ander Crenshaw (R-FL).

Ross worked as chief of staff for Rep. Al Green (D-TX) prior to moving to Sifma. 

The pair’s extensive Capitol Hill experience, particularly within financial services policy, make them valuable members for Sifma’s advocacies in Washington said Sifma president and chief executive officer Kenneth E. Bentsen.

“They both have substantial financial services policy and advocacy experience that will be of great benefit to Sifma’s members as we advocate for efficient and effective capital markets,” Bentsen said in a statement.
