Julie Brill, who has served as a Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission since April 2010, will resign her position at the end of this month.
“Commissioner Brill has been an unwavering advocate for consumers and competition during her six-year tenure at the Federal Trade Commission,” said FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez. “Commissioner Brill’s expertise in consumer protection, privacy, and antitrust has been an asset to the agency, and we are sorry to see her leave. We wish her well on her next steps.”
A Democrat, Brill was appointed by President Obama and sworn in on April 6, 2010. Her last day at the Commission will be March 31, 2016. Brill plans to remain in Washington, D.C. and will be going into private practice.
Prior to joining the FTC, Commissioner Brill was the Senior Deputy Attorney General and Chief of Consumer Protection and Antitrust for the North Carolina Department of Justice. Before that, she served as an Assistant Attorney General for Consumer Protection and Antitrust for the State of Vermont for over 20 years.
