The Times reports on Citigroup’s relationship with Richard Hohlt.
Mr. Hohlt’s role is to solve problems and help Mr. Parsons communicate more effectively, but not to lobby on Citigroup’s behalf. “I don’t bring him to meetings,” he said. “He is a useful source of information.”
A spokesman said that Citigroup was paying Mr. Hohlt’s fees, and that because he hadn’t been retained as a lobbyist, his assignment did not need to be publicly disclosed.
