Feb. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Timothy F. Geithner, who ended his term as U.S. Treasury Secretary in January, will join the Council on Foreign Relations this month and plans to publish a book.

Geithner, 51, will work for the council as a full-time distinguished fellow in New York, where the organization is based, the group said today in two separate emails. He was previously a senior fellow there in 2001.

He’s also planning a book and will be meeting with publishers, Robert Barnett, a partner at Williams & Connolly LLP, said in an e-mail. Barnett is a lawyer who has represented former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and country singer Shania Twain.

As President Barack Obama’s Treasury secretary starting in January 2009, Geithner oversaw bailouts of companies including Citigroup Inc. and General Motors Co., steered the financial-rules revamp and negotiated with congressional leaders on the budget and debt limit.

The Council on Foreign Relations is a non-partisan organization providing analysis on policy issues including defense, the environment, economics and terrorism. It’s headed by Robert Rubin, also a former Treasury secretary, and Carla Hills, chairman and chief executive officer of Hills & Co.
