Consumer Protection Deputy Director To Leave FTC :: News :: Natural and Nutritional Products Industry Center:
"Lee Peeler Will Lead National Advertising Review Council

Federal Trade Commission Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras today announced that C. Lee Peeler, deputy director of the Bureau of Consumer Protection for the past five years, will leave the FTC.

“Lee’s imprint can be found on three decades of important FTC consumer protection work,” FTC Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras said. “Through his dedicated efforts, he has exemplified our very best, and we will miss his wise counsel and unlimited enthusiasm.” Peeler, who began his career with the FTC in 1973, will become president of the National Advertising Review Council and Executive Vice President for National Advertising and Self-Regulation of the Council of Better Business Bureaus.

Peeler began his FTC career in the Consumer Protection Bureau’s Division of Special Statutes which became the Division of Credit Practices. In that position he helped shape the agency’s enforcement program for the Fair Credit Reporting Act and other Consumer Credit Protection Act statutes. In 1980, Peeler became a deputy assistant director in that division, and later was appointed executive assistant to the bureau director."
