Majoras to Resign Soon

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Normally we don't include gossip on the blog but when gossip about antitrust gets coverage in the Wall Street Journal and NY Times (and why can't we get more general coverage on antitrust in these papers-- after all, antitrust is important to the economy, growth and consumers), it is worth mentioning.  FTC Chairman Majoras may soon leave the FTC for a private sector position in-house rather than return to her old firm.  During Majoras' tenure, we have seen some important accomplishments at the FTC along with some enforcement decisions that have not gone the agency's way.  Overall, Majoras has continued a strong line of leadership at the agency from Janet Steiger to Bob Pitofsfsky to Tim Muris to Debbie Majoras.  I would argue that the FTC has been its strongest overall during this extended tenure than at any other time in its history.

Update:  It is now official that Majoras will leave the FTC at the end of March.
