The US Federal Trade Commission has recruited two senior competition lawyers to take up leading roles at the Bureau of Competition.
Kenneth Glazer and David Wales have joined the bureau as deputy directors from Coca-Cola and Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft respectively.
The pair replace former deputy director Barry Nigro, who left the bureau last November to return to private practice at Willkie Farr & Gallagher.
Prior to his appointment, Glazer was Coca-Cola's in-house senior competition counsel. He served in the drinks company's in-house team from 1993.
Wales, who has also been appointed deputy director of the Federal Trade Commission's Bureau of Competition, joined from Cadwalader's Washington DC office, where he was a partner in the antitrust practice. Prior to that, Wales was a competition partner at Shearman & Sterling.
Glazer and Wales will report to Federal Trade Commission chair Deborah Platt Majoras. As deputy directors, Glazer and Wales will work with the bureau's merger and non-merger enforcement divisions.
