U.S. Chamber Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness
Thomas Quaadman is the vice president of the U.S. Chamber Center for Capital Markets competitiveness. The Center 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 the financial markets in the 21st century.
Quaadman develops and executes strategic policies to implement a global corporate financial reporting system, address ongoing attempts of minority shareholder abuse of the proxy system, communicate the benefits of efficient American capital markets, and promote an innovation economy and the long-term interests of all investors.
Prior to joining the Chamber, Quaadman was chief of staff to Congressman Vito John Fossella Jr. (R-NY) from 1997 to 2008. In that capacity, he helped establish the Republican Policy Committee Task Force on Capital Markets, Economic, and Information Security to develop a legislative program on economic competitiveness. Quaadman also worked on the passage of the Investors Capital Markets Fee Relief Act. This act reduced SEC transaction fees, representing a savings of billions of dollars for investors.
Quaadman graduated cum laude from New York Law School and is a graduate of the College of Staten Island. He is a member of the New York and Connecticut state bars. Quaadman and his wife, Tara, and their children, Creighton and Alexandra, reside in Alexandria, Virginia.
