WASHINGTON – Forbes Tate Partners (FTP) today announced Stacey Rolland has joined the firm as a senior vice president within FTP’s government affairs practice. With a deep understanding of developing regulatory and legal frameworks and strategic partnerships in technology, financial services, and tax policy, Rolland will bring her experience to bear for FTP’s growing portfolio of clients focused on FinTech, data policy and governance, and emerging technologies.

“Stacey has unparalleled experience at the intersection of government relations and tech policy, making her invaluable as our clients navigate a new Congress and administration focused on emerging technology policy,” said FTP Founding Partner Jeff Forbes. “Her depth of knowledge regarding strategic financial services will also help our clients here at FTP. We are proud to have Stacey on our team.”

“Emerging technologies are rapidly changing our world, redefining the ways we interact and make decisions, and transforming business and society,” Rolland explained. “These technologies, especially in financial services, present an exciting and ever-expanding new horizon for federal policy making. I’m thrilled to be joining FTP to build a FinTech and emerging technologies practice and to help shape U.S. policies in these critical areas of growth and innovation.”

Prior to joining FTP, Rolland served in executive roles in governance, risk management and compliance at Capital One.  She previously served within the Treasury Department as Chief of Staff to the Office of Tax Policy and senior advisor to the Office of Legislative Affairs.  She also served as senior policy advisor to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congressman Xavier Becerra. She holds a J.D. from UCLA School of Law, a B.A. from Smith College, and CIPP/US and CIPM certifications from IAPP – International Association of Privacy Professionals.

Melissa Koide, CEO and director of FinRegLab and former Deputy Assistant Treasury Secretary for Consumer Policy said “Stacey is deeply familiar with both the legislative and rulemaking processes, especially in historically-challenging times. She is great to work with and skilled in creative problem-solving. She will be an asset to Forbes Tate Partners and her clients and a valuable resource to policy makers.”

As FTP continues to grow as a full-service public affairs and government relations firm, Rolland’s strategic insights will help expand its technology practice and meet the unique goals of the firm’s clients.
