Previously, Ramsay served with the SEC as deputy chief counsel for the Division of Market Regulation. He derived most of his regulatory experience from working in key positions at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the National Association of Securities Dealers (now FINRA). In the private sector, the veteran served as a partner at the law firm of Morgan Lewis and Bockius, and at the Bond Market Association (now part of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association), Citigroup Global Markets, and most recently, the Regulatory Fundamentals Group LLC, a private consulting firm.
