Joshua D. Wright, who has served as a commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission since January 2013, will resign his position with his last day as a commissioner on Monday, Aug. 24, 2015.
“It has been a privilege to work with Commissioner Wright during his tenure at the Federal Trade Commission,” said FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez in a news release from the FTC. “The agency has benefited greatly from his perspective as a lawyer and economist in connection with the matters that have come before us. We are going to miss him and wish him well on his return to academic life.”
Wright was appointed by President Barack Obama to replace J. Thomas Rosch. Wright will return to George Mason University School of Law as a professor of Law, according to the FTC.
Prior to being a commissioner, Wright had also served at the FTC as an inaugural Scholar in Residence and in both the Bureau of Competition and Bureau of Economics.
