H. Peter Haveles Jr., a partner in the Commercial Litigation Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the April 3, 2017 Securities Regulation and Law Report, Bloomberg BNA  article, "Market Intel at Heart of CFTC Reorganization, Lawyers Say."

Haveles said the “more dramatic and significant” change isn’t moving parts of surveillance to Enforcement but the establishment of a market intelligence officer who reports directly to the chairman.

“He’s saying, `there’s been a lack of focus on this kind of intense data analytical work with respect to the operation and the functionality of the marketplace, and that is the more important task—to make sure the markets are liquid and serve their purpose,’ ” Haveles said. "[T]his person’s going to do what [Giancarlo] says and get the kind of data he needs to analyze and improve the marketplace.”
