07 Aug 2013

The United States Senate confirmed an additional five-year term for SEC Chairman Mary Jo White; her term will now end on 5 June 2019.

Ms White, a former federal prosecutor, was originally nominated by President Obama to complete former SEC Chairman Mary Schapiro's term and serve a full five-year term as head of the SEC. The US Senate confirmed Ms White as the Chairman of the SEC in April 2013 and confirmed her five-year term extension on 1 August 2013.

Ms White replaced Elisse Walter, who had been serving as SEC Chairman after Ms Schapiro’s resignation in December 2012.
