Eric Cantor Lands At Wall Street Investment Firm

September 2, 2014 6:35 a.m.

Former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has landed a post-congressional gig on Wall Street.

Cantor plans to join boutique investment firm Moelis & Co. this week as a vice chairman and board member, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. The former congressman also plans to open a new office for the firm in Washington.

Cantor’s compensation was unknown.

After suffering a stunning primary defeat at the hands of little-known economics professor David Brat in June, Cantor gave up his leadership position and resigned from Congress last month.
