Breaking News: New PBGC Director

W. Thomas Reeder Jr. became the 15th director of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PGGC) in October, 2015. This Thursday he will be the only witness at a hearing of the Joint Select Committee on the Solvency of Multiemployer Pension Plans to examine the state of the PBGC (which happens to be approaching bankruptcy). This could be Mr. Reeder’s last act as PBGC director.

President Donald J. Trump yesterday announced his intent intent to nominate to a key position in his Administration:

Gordon Hartogensis of Connecticut, to be Director of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation at the Department of Labor.

Mr. Hartogensis is an investor and technology sector leader with experience managing financial equities, bonds, private placements, and software development. He holds a B.S. in Computer Science from Stanford University and an M.S. in Technology Management from Columbia University.

A lot more experience in donating to the Republican party (and being related to insiders) than with pensions.

      Fill that swamp!!
      Trump was elected because he was an “outsider”, and claimed he would stop the backroom cronyism, bought and paid for Puppet Congress and agencies. This was the ONLY reason he was elected. AND, Like most politicians, he over promised and under delivered. Big time. When 2020 rolls around my vote goes o the next leader of “change”.
