Award presented today by the American University in Washington, DC
Lois Greisman, Associate Director of the Federal Trade Commission’s Division of Marketing Practices (DMP), today received the 2019-2020 Roger W. Jones Award for Executive Leadership, presented by the American University’s Key Executive Leadership Programs. The award recognizes career executives in the federal government for their exceptional public service and dedication to the work and goals of government.
“The Selection Committee was impressed by the exceedingly high caliber and diversity of accomplishments displayed among the nominees this year, and your selection is both a tribute to your achievement and to the FTC,” said Dr. Patrick Malone, Director of the University’s Key Executive Leadership Program.
FTC Chairman Joe Simons said, “I can’t think of a more dedicated manager, leader, and public servant than Lois, and I was pleased to nominate her for this award. She’s the consummate professional and leads the Commission’s efforts on a wide range of important consumer protection programs including enforcement of the Do Not Call Registry, the fight to combat illegal robocalls, and the FTC’s efforts to stop fraud on the Internet. Her recognition with this award is well-deserved.”
