On July 18, 2017, Pres­i­dent Donald Trump an­nounced the nom­i­na­tion of Hester Maria Peirce as SEC com­mis­sioner for the remainder of a five-year term expiring June 5, 2020.

Ms. Peirce is cur­rently a senior re­search fellow and di­rec­tor of the fi­nan­cial markets working group at the Mer­ca­tus Center at George Mason Uni­ver­sity. Pres­i­dent Barack Obama nom­i­nated Ms. Peirce for the po­si­tion last year; however, the Senate did not have a hearing on her nom­i­na­tion.

For more in­for­ma­tion, see the press release on the White House’s Web site.
