Obama Names Ramirez Chairwoman of Federal Trade Commission

The Obama Administration has announced that FTC Commissioner Edith Ramirez is the new Chairwoman of the agency. Ramirez is seen as an expert in litigation and antitrust matters. In private practice she worked with clients such as Mattel, Walt Disney and Northrop Grumman. Because Ramirez has been a sitting Commissioner since 2010, no Senate confirmation is necessary. The departure of previous Chairman Jon Leibowitz leaves an opening for a third Democratic commission member. That selection will require the Senate’s approval.

Chairwoman Ramirez will speak at AAF’s Advocacy and Action: Advertising Day on the Hill on April 17.
