Dear Chairman Brown and Ranking Member Toomey:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the nomination of Mark Uyeda to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Mr. Uyeda has demonstrated a deep understanding for the functioning of capital markets, the laws and regulations that underpin the U.S. market structure, and how businesses thrive in a competitive financial system. The Chamber has been fortunate to work with him throughout his career.
Mr. Uyeda has served with distinction in various capacities in government and the private sector. He has served for over 15 years as an attorney and advisor at the SEC, where he developed an unparalleled understanding of securities laws. When detailed to the Treasury Department, Mr. Uyeda demonstrated an awareness and grasp of the broader U.S. financial regulatory regime through his work to inform reports to update outdated aspects of our regulatory structure. In each of these roles, Mr. Uyeda has acted with integrity and demonstrated a strong commitment to public service.
We encourage the Committee to favorably report his nomination to the full Senate.
Executive Vice President
Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness
