Bart Chilton, Commissioner, US Commodity Futures Trading Commission

With a government service career spanning 30 years, Commissioner Bart Chilton, in March of 2014, left the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission to become a Senior policy Advisor at DLA Piper, the world's largest law firm.

He's been called the "most colorful regulator in history" and is highly experienced in financial services. He's known for barnstorming speeches tinged with cultural and musical references. He’s a frequently quoted opinion leader, appearing on television and editorial pages, and is the author of Ponzimonium: How Scam Artists Are Ripping off America. He's currently working on a second book: Theft, about the intersection between Wall Street and Washington.

Mr. Chilton came to the CFTC in 2007 following his nomination by President Bush and Senate confirmation. In 2009, he was re-nominated by President Obama and reconfirmed. He's served as the Chairman of the CFTC’s Energy and Environmental Markets Advisory Committee (EEMAC), and Global Markets Advisory Committee (GMAC). Commissioner Chilton has the rare trifecta of working in the House of Representatives, Senate and Executive Branch (during the Clinton, Bush and Obama Administrations), serving as Deputy Chief of Staff to Clinton Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman and as Senior Advisor to Senate Leader Tom Daschle.
