The Brookings Institutions, a Washington-based think tank, announced Monday that Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Donald Kohn will join the firm after he retires from the central bank this year.

Kohn, 67, will become a senior fellow at Brookings in mid-September.

She has been approved by the Senate Banking Committee and awaits a final vote by the full Senate.
