The Florida Office of Financial Regulation today announced that Ronald L. Rubin has been appointed commissioner of the agency by the Financial Services Commission.
Commissioner Ronald L. Rubin said, “I’m honored to have been chosen by the Financial Services Commission to serve Floridians as the leader of the OFR. It’s wonderful to be back in Florida, and I look forward to working with Governor DeSantis, CFO Patronis, Attorney General Moody, and Commissioner Fried. Last year’s federal tax bill made Florida even more attractive for businesses, and I plan to focus on policies that encourage financial innovation, address evolving industry concerns, and, of course, fight fraud in the Sunshine State.”

In addition to other roles, he served as a criminal prosecutor, spending time at the Broward County State Attorney’s Office, an enforcement attorney with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Miami and New York and with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a partner at Hunton & Williams LLP, and as chief advisor on regulatory policy with the U.S. House of Representatives Financial Services Committee. He holds an undergraduate degree in economics, MBA degree in finance from the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business, and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
