Steptoe & Johnson partner Matthew Kulkin has been named director of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight, the agency announced today.
The division chiefly oversees swap dealers, futures brokers, and futures industry self-regulatory organizations.
Kulkin is co-chairman of the DC Bar’s Derivatives, Securitization, and Project Finance Committee.
He will replace Eileen Flaherty, who will return to the private sector after approximately two years at the agency, according to the commission.
