Barbara B. Wierzynski

Few people have had as much influence on the legislative and regulatory framework of the U.S. futures industry as Barbara Wierzynski. She joined FIA as vice president for regulatory affairs in 1986 and was promoted to general counsel in 1989 and served in that role until she retired in 2014. Besides devoting countless hours to working with the association’s members, she guided the industry’s dialogue with regulators on a long list of challenging issues, including the crash of 1987, the collapse of Barings Bank, the terrorist attacks of 9/11, and the perennial battles over the reauthorization of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
