Chapter 293 Regional Chief Steward Marshall Gandy, a Trial Attorney in the Fort Worth Regional Office, recently resigned from the SEC. Marshall has accepted a position with the Dallas District Office of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Created in 2007 through the consolidation of NASD and the regulation, enforcement and arbitration functions of the NYSE, FINRA is the largest non-governmental regulator for all securities firms doing business in the U.S.
Before joining the Commission in 1999, Marshall served as a Dallas County criminal court judge for ten years and was responsible for establishing the first criminal court docket dedicated to family violence cases. Before his tenure as a judge, he also served as an Assistant District Attorney in Dallas. Marshall has been a member of NTEU since its inception, and he has served as a steward for a number of years. In 2007, he was appointed to serve as Regional Chief Steward. In that capacity, he worked closely with other stewards in all of the SEC’s regional offices. Chapter 293 and the SEC will miss Marshall’s intelligence, humor and hard work.
Chapter 293 also welcomes its new steward for the FWRO, John Popham. Congratulations John!
