“NexChange is devoted to and directed toward financial services sector professionals. It’s an exciting and different way to connect. It's a more efficient and effective way to get information and it can change the way people communicate.” - Bart Chilton, Senior Advisor, NexChange
With a career spanning 30 years in government service, Mr. Chilton served as a CFTC Commissioner from 2007-2014. He is highly experienced in issues including financial services, agriculture, energy, and the environment. The Commissioner is a frequently quoted opinion leader on financial matters and appears regularly on business television and on editorial pages.
Commissioner Chilton came to the CFTC in 2007 following his nomination by President George W. Bush and confirmation by the U.S. Senate. In 2009, he was re-nominated by President Barack Obama and reconfirmed by the Senate. He served as the chairman of the CFTC’s Energy and Environmental Markets Advisory Committee (EEMAC) and the Global Markets Advisory Committee (GMAC).

Following the end of his term at the CFTC in 2014, Mr. Chilton joined the global law firm, DLA Piper as Senior Policy Advisor where he works on financial regulatory matter many with many disruptive start-up companies, like NexChange.
