Female commissioners soon could outnumber their male counterparts at the SEC, thanks to President Donald Trump.
Trump intends to nominate Securities and Exchange Commission senior counsel Caroline Crenshaw for a seat last held by Democratic-leaning independent Robert Jackson, the White House said Thursday. She would be the third woman on the five-member commission, if the Senate confirms her.
Crenshaw would join Democratic Commissioner Allison Lee and Republican Commissioner Hester Peirce, whom Trump nominated for a second term earlier this month. Lee and Peirce split the SEC’s seats with Republican Commissioner Elad Roisman and Chairman Jay Clayton, a Republican-leaning independent.
