After more than two decades of federal government service, Brian Bussey, 53, the Director of the Division of Clearing and Risk (DCR) at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), is taking early retirement from government service, the agency announced today. His last day as Director will be July 12, 2019; he will continue in federal service until July 29, 2019.
“Brian worked tirelessly from day one to lead the highly capable team in DCR to do strong work for the Commission to accomplish our regulatory mission,” said CFTC Chairman J. Christopher Giancarlo. “I am not alone in wishing him well in his retirement from federal service and good luck with his future endeavors.”
As DCR Director since 2017, Bussey has led a team of approximately 70 attorneys, examiners, accountants, and quantitative, risk, and technology systems analysts in Washington and Chicago. Bussey has had oversight responsibility for all aspects of the DCR’s operations, including its legal, domestic and international policy, risk surveillance, and examinations programs.
