    Biden makes it official: Gary Gensler will run SEC

    The MIT professor spearheading crypto and finance collaboration will lead the Securities and Exchange Commission, President-elect Joe Biden confirmed

    In a Jan. 18 announcement, the Biden Transition Team highlighted Gensler’s history of leading financial markets reform going back more than 20 years. This included two years as senior advisor to Sen. Paul Sarbanes (D-MD) in writing the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, a major financial reform bill that came in the wake of a number of major financial scandals, including Enron.
