The U.S. Senate has confirmed Nigerian-born, Adewale Wally Adeyemo as Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, making him the first African-American to hold the powerful job.

Adeyemo’s appointment was confirmed by the senate on Thursday on a voice vote, a procedure used when there is little to no opposition.

He is expected to play a key role in shaping U.S. economic policy on issues ranging from financial regulation to relief for everyday Americans and U.S. sanctions on foreign governments.

The 39-year-old former senior adviser at asset manager BlackRock Inc served in the administration of former President Barack Obama, as a top national security and economic adviser.
