FTC names Alison Oldale as deputy director for antitrust

The Federal Trade Commission named Alison Oldale as the Deputy Director for Antitrust in the Bureau of Economics on Wednesday.

Oldale comes to the FTC from Britain’s Competition Commission, where she served as Chief Economist. She will join the bureau in mid-July. Until then, acting deputy director Tim Deyak will continue to fill the roll.

The antitrust division of the Bureau of Economics participates in investigations into alleged anticompetitive acts or practices and provides advice on the economic merits of alternative antitrust actions.

Oldale replaces Howard Shelanski, who left the FTC after two years with the agency to teach law at Georgetown University.
