CFTC and Ferc see a changing of the guard

GDF Suez hires SG energy derivatives head; Citi appoints in commodity sales; BNP Paribas recruits investor sales head; Marex Spectron adds meteorologist; Freepoint gains oil trader


Both the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Ferc) – the two principal US commodity and energy market regulators – have experienced significant shifts among their commissioners in the past few months.

Most notably, CFTC commissioner Scott O'Malia resigned on July 21 to become chief executive of the New York-based International Swaps and Derivatives Association. O'Malia replaces Bob Pickel, who announced his resignation from Isda in April.
