His predecessor Janet Yellen is the first chairman of the Fed since World War II to serve only one four-year term, and was the first woman to hold that position.
Powell has inherited a healthier economy than Yellen did, with unemployment at 4.1 %, a 17-year low.
A former investment banker, Powell will be the first Fed chairman in 40 years who doesnt have a PhD in economics.
