Former Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) commissioner Sharon Bowen has been named a director of the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE).

Bowen—who served at the CFTC from 2014 to 2017—fills a newly created board seat. She served as vice chair of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation and was acting chair from 2012 until 2014. Before joining the CFTC, Bowen was a partner at law firm Latham & Watkins.

ICE chairman and chief executive officer Jeffrey Sprecher said Bowen’s experience and perspective will provide guidance to the exchanges and clearing house the company operates.

“With over 35 year of regulatory, securities and public policy expertise, we are confident that Sharon will contribute meaningfully to the governance of our global business,” Sprecher said in a statement.

Bowen’s appointment brings ICE’s board seats to 12.
