Ferguson has a remarkable record of public service and private sector success, having served as the former vice chairman of the board of governors of the U.S. Federal Reserve System and as the CEO and president of TIAA, a leading provider of retirement services in the academic, research, medical, and cultural fields, according to a Blend blog post.
