President Donald Trump announced Thursday his intent to nominate Caroline Crenshaw to be a commissioner at the Securities and Exchange Commission, replacing Robert Jackson.
Crenshaw currently serves as senior counsel at the SEC and a captain in the U.S. Army Reserve’s Judge Advocate General’s Corps. For her new role at the SEC, she must be confirmed by the Senate.
The attorney joined the SEC in 2013 and has served in the Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations, the Division of Investment Management, and as counsel to Commissioners Kara Stein and Jackson, who left his post in February.
Her work has focused on legal and policy analysis related to corporate governance, investment management, enforcement, international regulation, and the oversight of self-regulatory organizations.
Before joining the SEC, Crenshaw practiced law in the Washington, D.C. office of Sutherland, Asbill and Brennan LLP, where she represented public companies, broker-dealers and investment advisors on complex securities law investigations and enforcement matters.
Crenshaw received her undergraduate degree from Harvard College and her law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School.
