Partnership for Public Service statement urging the Senate to act on nomination of SEC Chairman-designate Gary Gensler

April 2, 2021

WASHINGTON – The nonpartisan, nonprofit Partnership for Public Service released the following statement from President and CEO Max Stier urging the Senate to quickly consider Gary Gensler’s nomination as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. 

“Gary Gensler’s extensive public and private sector experience in financial markets makes him an excellent choice to lead the Securities and Exchange Commission,” said Max Stier, president and CEO of the Partnership for Public Service. “Gensler is a dedicated public servant with deep understanding of the need to engage with and strengthen the SEC workforce.” 

Stier continued, “I urge the Senate to quickly consider Gensler’s nomination so he can get to work creating economic opportunity and ensuring that the securities markets serve the needs of the nation. I applaud President Joe Biden for his wise decision nominating Gensler for SEC chairmanship.” 

The Partnership produces and maintains several other resources to assess and analyze the health of the federal government. These include a political appointments tracker with The Washington Post to follow the progress of nearly 800 of President Biden’s Senate-confirmed political appointments, and the annual Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® rankings, produced by the Partnership and Boston Consulting Group, which measure employee engagement government-wide as well as at individual departments, agencies and subcomponents.
