The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced that Lois C. Greisman, Associate Director for Marketing Practices, Bureau of Consumer Protection (BCP), has received the 2021 Presidential Rank Award.
“I am delighted to congratulate Lois C. Greisman on receiving the prestigious 2021 Presidential Rank Award,” said FTC Chair Lina M. Khan. “Lois has made extraordinary contributions to the FTC’s consumer protection work that protects Americans from fraud and other unlawful practices and helps establish a level playing field allowing legitimate businesses to compete and prosper.”
In Ms. Greisman’s 29-year career at the FTC, she has held positions with ever-increasing responsibilities. Ms. Greisman has served as Attorney Advisor to two FTC Chairs and Chief of Staff to a third Chair, deftly navigating Administration transitions and ensuring that agency enforcement and operations continued apace. Her appointment to the Senior Executive Service (SES) in 2002 was as the agency’s Associate Director for Planning and Information in BCP, where she led development of the National Do Not Call Registry and expanded the FTC’s Identity Theft Program, as well as its Consumer Response Center.
Ms. Greisman has received recognition nationally and internationally as a consumer protection leader, innovator, and advocate. Her expertise has made her a resource throughout the FTC and among worldwide law enforcement authorities on combating consumer fraud. Her recent work in spearheading several of the FTC’s initiatives combating coronavirus-related scams, in coordination with federal, state, and international law enforcement and industry members, epitomizes her results-driven orientation and leadership skills.
The Presidential Rank Award is among the highest honors awarded to a select group of the SES, who serve in key positions between top presidential appointees and the rest of the federal workforce. Each year, the President presents the award to those who have distinguished themselves by achieving a sustained record of exceptional results and consistently demonstrating strength, integrity, industry, and a relentless commitment to excellence in public service.
