Phil Angelides

Riverview Capital Investments

Phil Angelides has earned national acclaim as an effective public and private sector leader with an impressive record of advancing financial reform and corporate responsibility and forging innovative solutions to create jobs and economic progress. Mr. Angelides recently served as Chairman of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, a ten member bipartisan panel created by federal law and charged with conducting the nation’s official inquiry into the causes of the financial and economic crisis. The report made the New York Times and Washington Post best sellers lists and The New York Review of Books hailed it as “the most comprehensive indictment of the American financial failure that has yet been made” and “the definitive history of this period.” From 1999 to 2007, he served as California’s State Treasurer. He was the Democratic nominee for Governor in 2006. Mr. Angelides, 59, is a graduate of Harvard University and a Coro Foundation Fellow.
