Brian Quintenz is a former House aide and Washington, D.C. investment manager who was nominated by President Trump in 2017 to fill a Republican vacancy on the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. He was previously nominated for that role under the Obama administration, but his confirmation failed in the Senate. [1] [2]


Quintenz founded and ran Saeculum Capital Management before winding it down in 2016 in anticipation of being confirmed as CFTC commissioner in the Obama Congress.

He held a longtime position as a House aide to former Rep. Deborah Pryce (R., Ohio). He also worked as an analyst at the hedge fund Hill-Townsend Capital LLC and a Merrill Lynch consulting group.[3]


Quintenz graduated Magna Cum Laude from Duke University with a major in Public Policy Studies and received an MBA from Georgetown McDonough School of Business, where he was inducted into the Phi Beta Gamma honors society.
