Bloomberg Names New Executives for Public Policy

Bloomberg L.P. announced that Mary Schapiro will become Bloomberg’s Vice Chair for Global Public Policy and Special Advisor to the Founder and Chairman. Ms. Schapiro, who has had a distinguished career as a financial services regulator under four U.S. presidents from both political parties, will oversee Bloomberg’s public policy and regulatory priorities globally. Ms. Schapiro’s service as the 29th SEC Chair culminated decades of regulatory leadership. She was the first woman to serve as SEC Chair, and the only person to have served as chair of both the SEC and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. During her four years as SEC Chair, Ms. Schapiro presided over one of the busiest rulemaking agendas in the SEC’s history, during which the agency also executed a comprehensive restructuring program to improve protections for investors and pursued aggressive enforcement of the federal securities laws. Bloomberg L.P. also announced that Didem Nisanci, who works as a Managing Director at Promontory, will join Bloomberg as global head of public policy. Ms. Nisanci served for four years as the chief of staff of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. In that role she advised the Chair on issues involving the SEC, including operational, policy, legislative, strategy, and communication matters. During her tenure as chief of staff, Ms. Nisanci also served as the SEC deputy to the Financial Stability Oversight Council. Prior to the SEC, she served as staff director for the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Subcommittee on Securities, Insurance and Investment. Both positions are effective October 15.
