Statement on appointment of Edith Ramirez as Chair of the FTC

Statement on Appointment of Edith Ramirez at Chair of the FTC by Jeff Chester, CDD Edith Ramirez cares deeply about consumers and the issues that effect their everyday lives. She is always willing to listen and works hard to find out the facts before making a decision. We have found her to display unique insights on issues critical to consumer welfare and competition. Ms. Ramirez will be a thoughtful and effective leader of an agency that has been strengthened over the last several years to better meet the consumer protection challenges of the 21st Century. Under her leadership, we expect the FTC to blaze new ground on privacy—especially involving mobile devices, digital data brokers and Do Not Track.
