With little fanfare, the Senate on Monday confirmed former federal prosecutor Mary Jo White as head of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

CNN Money reported that White, 65, was confirmed without a roll call vote.

She is currently head of litigation at the law firm of Debevoise & Plimpton in New York. She  was the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan.
