On Thursday, it was reported that President Obama will name Edith Ramirez, a Latina graduate of Harvard Law, to become the Chair of the Federal Trade Commission. Ramirez has been serving as a commissioner on the FTC since 2010 and is noted for her anti-trust experience. Ramirez is the first Latina to be named Chair of the FTC.

Ramirez, a Southern California native, is a Harvard Law School classmate of President Obama.

Alex Nogales of the National Hispanic Media Coalition issued the following statement on the new role for Ramirez, “The FTC plays a vital role in preventing unfair, deceptive and anti-competitive business practices. It protects consumers while at the same time promoting lawful business practices. I congratulate President Obama on his decision to appoint Edith Ramirez as the next FTC Chair. Her legal background and keen intellect make her an excellent person for the job.”
