CFTC Commissioner Resigns

Jul 21 2006 | 5:28pm ET

Hedge funds have lost a champion on the Commodities Futures Trading Commission with the resignation of Sharon Brown-Hruska. The former business school professor, who was nominated to be a commissioner in 2002, will join NERA Economic Consulting's securities and finance practice as a vice president.

Brown-Hruska served as acting chairman of the agency from 2004 to 2005.

"Sharon's deep understanding of global financial markets will further enhance NERA's leading position as a foremost authority on securities and finance issues," NERA President Andrew Carron said. On the CFTC, Brown-Hruska urged caution in issuing new hedge fund regulations, and was a prominent opponent of the Securities and Exchange Commission's hedge fund registration requirement.
