Eileen Harrington '82 was named the Executive Director of the Federal Trade Commission. Harrington previously worked a 15-month stint as Chief Operating Officer at the U.S. Small Business Administration. Prior to that she served for 25 years at the FTC, starting as a staff attorney and assuming a variety of senior management positions in the Bureau of Consumer Protection, including Associate Director for Marketing Practices, Deputy Director, and Acting Director. Harrington has a long list of accomplishments from her tenure at the FTC. Perhaps most notably, she received the prestigious Service to America Medal for leading the team that created the National Do Not Call Registry.

"This is a very happy homecoming,” said Federal Trade Commission Chairman Jon Leibowitz. "Eileen has made an invaluable contribution to the FTC in the past, and her strong management skills, enthusiasm, and creativity will once again be put to use for the betterment of the agency and for American consumers. We are delighted to have her back.”
