Meet Richard McKewen

Attorney, Northwest Regional Office

The personal is just as important as the professional.

It might sound corny, but we do seem like one big happy FTC family. We celebrate each others’ successes, both professional and personal, whether it’s a courtroom victory or a colleague’s wedding. We also celebrate our agency’s diversity, whether it’s a group of LGBT employees going to a Nationals’ game for Pride Month, or the president of the NAACP being honored for her many accomplishments at an agency-wide reception.

Also, the personal is just as important as the professional; every boss I’ve had at the agency has understood the importance of a healthy work-life balance. Therefore, it’s not surprising that there are many people here who have been with the agency for decades. Will I be one of those people? You never know.
