Max Rose, former Brooklyn/Staten Island Democratic Congressman, has joined Oaktree Solutions as managing director for federal and international affairs.

Frank Carone, who was NYC mayor Eric Adams’ chief of staff, founded Brooklyn-based Oaktree.

Republican Nicole Maliotakis defeated Rose in the 2022 election, which was a repeat of his 2020 defeat.

In Congress, Rose chaired the Homeland Security subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism and the subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness and Recovery.

He also served in the infantry in Afghanistan and is still a Major in the Army Reserve.

Rose served in the Biden administration as senior advisor on Covid-19 to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

He joins Oaktree from The Soufan Group, which Rose joined in January as vice chairman.

Carone said Rose has “devoted his entire life and career to serving the common good, and he’s going to be an excellent addition to our senior team.”
