Penny S. Pritzker ’81 Confirmed as Commerce Secretary

The Senate confirmed Penny S. Pritzker ’81 as Commerce Secretary today by a 97-1 vote.
Some were expecting the confirmation process to be fraught with difficulty, given Pritzker’s past dealings with unions, financial disclosure forms, and tax havens.
Another HPR alumnus, Alexander Burns ’08 even wrote an article in Tuesday’s Politico entitled, “On Penny Pritzker, where’s the outrage?” In the end, Pritzker’s stellar business record won out, as it garnered respect from both sides of the aisle.
As an undergraduate at Harvard, Pritzker served on the Harvard Political Review Business Board.
