One of our favorite regulators, "Little Ben" Lawsky, has let word slip out that he's planning to leave his post as New York Banking Jeffe next year to take a job in "the private sector." He won't reveal exactly what part of "the private sector" he intends to inflict himself upon. However, we've long been a fan of his broad base of experience in how businesses, especially banks, operate on a granular level. The Wall Street Journal linked above sums that "private sector" experience up nicely.
Mr. Lawsky previously served as Gov. Cuomo’s top aide during both his governorship and his term as New York State Attorney General. Prior to that, Mr. Lawsky was a prosecutor in the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office and served as chief counsel to New York Democratic Senator Charles Schumer.

Whatever private sector job he chooses, we're absolutely certain that he'll simply nail it.
