Hartogensis confirmed and sworn in as Director of PBGC

By Pension and Benefits Editorial Staff

The Senate voted (72-27) to confirm the nomination of Gordon Hartogensis of Connecticut to be the new Director of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation on April 30, 2019. He took the oath of office to become the 16th director of the PBGC on May 15, 2019. Hartogensis succeeds Tom Reeder, who served as director from October 2015 - May 2019.

“I am honored to serve in this important role,” Hartogensis said. “I am looking forward to working with Congress, the Administration and stakeholders to protect and advance the retirement security of the nearly 37 million Americans we insure.”

Prior to joining the PBGC, Hartogensis managed a portfolio of private equity, venture capital, real estate, and angel investments, and served as an advisor to several portfolio companies. Before that, he started two software companies, which he later sold.
