Statement on the Retirement of FINRA Chairman and CEO Richard Ketchum

Chair Mary Jo White

Oct. 30, 2015

“Rick Ketchum is rightly recognized as a strong regulator who combines brilliance with a deep knowledge of our markets. He ably served at the SEC for 14 years, with eight of those years as director of the Division of Market Regulation. More recently, he continues to serve as a member of the SEC’s Market Structure Advisory Committee and previously served as a member of our Joint Economic Committee for Emerging Regulatory Issues. He came to FINRA in the aftermath of the financial crisis, where he worked tirelessly to protect and educate investors while also improving the integrity of the markets. I want to thank him for his continuing service to FINRA, its members and, most importantly, investors.  Investors are better protected and our markets are stronger because of Rick Ketchum.”
