Ernest Green is Co-Chairman and Partner of Madison Asset Managment Group LLC. Previously he served as managing director of public finance for Lehman Brothers in Washington, D.C.

He subsequently served as assistant secretary of labor for employment and training in the Carter Administration. The courage and drama of his 1957 struggle to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, as part of the “Little Rock Nine” was captured by the PBS documentary, “The Ernest Green Story.”
