Mary L. Schapiro served as the 29th chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission—the first woman to serve as the agency’s permanent chairman. During her 2009-12 tenure, the SEC brought a record number of enforcement actions; pursued scores of individuals and entities in connection with the financial crisis; bolstered the resilience of U.S. equity market structure and reduced the likelihood of another “flash crash”; presided over one of the busiest rulemaking agendas in its history; obtained significant responsibilities for derivatives, hedge funds and credit rating agencies as a result of financial reform legislation; and underwent a comprehensive restructuring to become more effective in its investor protection mission. Prior to becoming SEC chairman, Schapiro was CEO of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and served as a director on the boards of Kraft Foods and Duke Energy.
