The Commerce Secretary's office as it looked in the mid-20th century.

The United States secretary of commerce (SecCom) is the head of the United States Department of Commerce. The secretary is appointed by the president of the United States with the advice and consent of the United States Senate and serves in the president's Cabinet. The secretary is concerned with promoting American businesses and industries; the department states its mission to be "to foster, promote, and develop the foreign and domestic commerce".[2]

Until 1913, there was one secretary of commerce and labor, uniting this department with the Department of Labor, which is now headed by a separate secretary of labor.[3]

The current commerce secretary is Wilbur Ross, who was nominated by President Donald Trump and approved by the Senate on February 28, 2017.
