Brian Quintenz is an American financial manager and policy advisor who currently serves as a member of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.


He is the former head of Saeculum Capital Management, an investment firm which he founded in 2013. In March 2016, Quintenz was nominated by President Barack Obama to be a commissioner on the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. His nomination, which required confirmation by the U.S. Senate, was not voted on before Congress ended its session for the year.[1] In early 2017, President Donald Trump withdrew Quintenz's nomination to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission before renominating him to serve the remainder of a five-year term expiring on April 13, 2020.[2][3] Quintenz was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on August 3, 2017.

Earlier in his career, Quintenz was a consultant with Rose International and was a senior associate at Hill-Townsend Capital. He worked for U.S. Representative Deborah Pryce from 2001 to 2007, starting as a staff assistant before being promoted to senior policy advisor.[3]
