Former SEC Commissioner Daniel Gallagher is now president of financial services regulatory consulting firm Patomak Global Partners in Washington.
Gallagher, who served as a Republican commissioner at the Securities and Exchange Commission from November 2011 to October 2015, left his post early, on Oct. 2. His term was to expire this year.
The White House nominated Mercatus fellow Hester Peirce to replace Gallagher, a Republican, on the Commission, while George Washington University law professor Lisa Fairfax has been nominated to replace Democratic Commissioner Luis Aguilar, who left in December.
Senate Banking Committee Chairman Richard Shelby is said to be scheduling confirmation hearings for Peirce and Fairfax as early as the end of January.
