Senate Confirms New CPSC Chairman & Commissioner

This past Monday, July 28, the U.S. Senate confirmed Elliot Kaye as the new CPSC Chairman and Joe Mohorovic as a new Commissioner of the agency.  Once Kaye and Mohorovic are officially sworn in this week, the Commission will be fully constituted with five Commissioners. 

Mr. Kaye is currently Executive Director of the CPSC and previously served  in former Chairman Inez Tenenbaum’s office as  Chief of Staff and Counsel.  He is an accomplished attorney, former prosecutor & Congressional staffer and has what is described as an innovative leadership style that has served as the driving force behind many of the agency’s most collaborative and successful initiatives.   

Mr. Mohorovic  previously served as the CPSC’s Chief of Staff and as a New Mexico legislator.  He previously was a Senior VP at Intertek, a company that tests, inspects, and certifies consumer products.

Because of their previous experience at the CPSC, both men are expected to engage on substantive issues immediately.
