Thomas Stanton, JD, serves on the board of directors of the Association of Federal Enterprise Risk Management (AFERM) and is a Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration. He holds degrees from the University of California at Davis, Yale University, and the Harvard Law School.

His books include Meeting the Challenge of 9/11: Blueprints for Effective, Government (M.E. Sharpe Publishers, 2006) and Making Government Manageable (co-edited with Benjamin Ginsberg, Johns Hopkins University Press, 2004). Concerns expressed in A State of Risk (HarperCollins, 1991) helped lead to legislation creating a new federal financial regulator. His latest, Why Some Firms Thrive While Others Fail: Governance and Management Lessons from the Crisis (Oxford University Press, 2012), explores differences between firms that successfully navigated the financial crisis and those that failed.
