SEC Commissioner Daniel Gallagher said farewell to agency he has called his professional home for so many years. A true champion of small business and rational regulation, Gallagher published a final note as he ended one chapter and prepared to start a new one.
In a brief statement, Gallagher bid the Commission farewell:
Today is my final day as a Commissioner of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. It has been a privilege and an honor to serve the public during such an important time. I thank my fellow Commissioners and the staff for the time spent working together on critical issues facing investors, issuers, and the markets. After having spent so many years at the SEC in various capacities, departing is certainly bittersweet. As a former SEC staffer, I have particularly enjoyed working so closely again with the Commission’s excellent staff.
I look forward to remaining involved in the important policy debates facing the U.S. capital markets in the years to come, including my lecture series with the Securities Law Program at the Catholic University Columbus School of Law. I wish the Commission the best as it tackles existing and future challenges.
