(Reuters) - Goldman Sachs Group Inc's <GS.N> President and Chief Operating Officer Gary Cohn will shortly accept the post to head the National Economic Council (NEC), CNBC reported, citing a source.
The NEC coordinates economic policy across agencies, a key role for U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's promise to jumpstart the economy after years of tepid growth.
Cohn, 56, would follow former Goldman executives Robert Rubin and Stephen Friedman in running the NEC.
