Washington, DC – Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chairman J. Christopher Giancarlo issued the following statement regarding the White House announcement of President Donald J. Trump's intent to nominate Heath P. Tarbert as the next Chairman of the CFTC:

“The White House has made a superb choice in Heath Tarbert as the intended nominee to be the next Chairman for the Commission,” said Giancarlo. “If confirmed by the US Senate, he will be an effective Chairman and will be well suited to continue the work of transitioning the CFTC into a Twenty-First Century digital regulator that balances concerns over systemic stability with market vibrancy to support strong economic growth and American prosperity.”
