Brian O’Shea is a senior director at the Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness (CCMC) at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. O’Shea manages the Chamber’s efforts on a number of SEC and capital markets-related issues, including corporate governance and capital formation. In addition, he advocates on behalf of Chamber members in front of regulatory agencies and elected officials, with a primary focus on establishing sound policies to promote sustainable growth and economic freedom.

CCMC was established in March 2007 to advocate legal and regulatory policies for the U.S. capital markets to advance the protection of investors, promote capital formation, and ensure U.S. leadership in financial markets in the 21st century.

Most recently, O’Shea was senior adviser to Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ), chairman of the Capital Markets Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee.

He also served as legislative director to Reps. Ann Wagner (R-MO) and Quico Canseco (R-TX), both members of the House Financial Services Committee.

Earlier in his career, O’Shea spent six and a half years with Morgan Stanley private wealth management, where he helped manage a client base with more than $1.5 billion in assets. He lives in Alexandria, Virginia, with his wife and two children.
