New York -- NERA Economic Consulting, a leading global provider of economic advice and analysis in business, legal, and regulatory matters, has appointed Senior Vice President Dr. Marcia Kramer Mayer as the new Chair of its Global Securities and Finance Practice.

With her intellect, vision, and long track record of success as an economist and consultant, I’m confident that Marcia will continue to move the Practice forward as a recognized leader in its field."

Dr. Mayer has been affiliated with NERA for 20 years, working on a wide variety of securities and finance projects, with special expertise in cases involving credit crisis allegations, accounting restatements, public offerings, stock acquisitions, FDA issues, market manipulation, insider trading, Ponzi schemes, and transactions-level data.
