The economy is top of mind for everyone, personally and professionally. Macroeconomist Diane Swonk, whose expertise and forecasts are highly sought-after by the media, keeps her eye on Wall Street and Main Street. As Grant Thornton L.L.P.’s Chief Economist, Swonk’s global network “includes economists, industry leaders and geopolitical experts, which amplifies the breadth and reach of her analysis.” 

Global Forum members are invited to join Diane in conversation with moderator Mike Silverman, Co-President and Chief Investment Officer of CH Investment Partners, a Dallas-based advisor supporting the Trammell Crow family , to talk about our economy and where we go from here.

Diane Swonk is Chief Economist at Grant Thornton, L.L.P. and a Fellow of the National Association for Business Economics. She received her B.A. and M.A. in economics from the University of Michigan and her MBA in finance from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. In her career of 30 years, Swonk has won many awards for excellence in forecasting and leadership in economics and the business community. She is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Swonk’s much-lauded 2003 book was “The Passionate Economist: Finding the Power and Humanity Behind the Numbers.” 

Mike Silverman is responsible for setting the direction of investment research, asset allocation, and risk management, as well as the selection of third-party investment managers in his role as Co-President and Chief Investment Officer of CH Investment Partners. Silverman currently serves on the Children’s Medical Center Foundation Board of Directors and as a trustee of the endowment funds for the Notre Dame School of Dallas. He is a member of the investment committees for Children’s Health System of Texas and for the Thomas Jefferson Foundation.
