A former House aide and Washington, D.C. investment manager, he was nominated by President Trump earlier that year to fill a Republican vacancy on the commission. He was previously nominated for that role under the Obama administration, but his confirmation failed in the Senate. 
Quintenz founded and ran Saeculum Capital Management before winding it down in 2016 in anticipation of being confirmed as a CFTC commissioner in the Obama Congress.
He held a longtime position as a House aide to former Rep. Deborah Pryce (R., Ohio), ultimately becoming her senior policy advisor. He also worked as an analyst at the hedge fund Hill-Townsend Capital LLC and at a Merrill Lynch consulting group.
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.
