I am deeply honored to have served as a Commissioner at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission over the last two and half years, as well as to have been a part of an administration that has assembled one of the best financial regulatory teams across the federal government. My five-year statutory term as a Commissioner expires this month. With its expiration, I have had an opportunity to reflect on my journey. It has been a privilege to serve my country in this role, easily the most rewarding experience of my professional career. However, after thoughtful consideration and much discussion with my family, I have decided not to seek re-nomination to another five-year term as a Commissioner. With five years having passed since I was first selected for this role, it is time for me to pursue new challenges and opportunities.
