The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced Wednesday that Andrew J. Bowden has been named deputy director of the agency’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations (OCIE).
He succeeds Norm Champ, who was named in July to head the SEC’s Division of Investment Management.
Bowden joined the SEC in November 2011 as the national associate director for OCIE’s Investment Adviser/Investment Company Examination Program. He will assume his new responsibilities immediately and continue in his former role until a successor is in place, the SEC says.
“Drew is an outstanding professional with a valuable combination of technical expertise, industry perspective, and leadership and management skills,” said OCIE Director Carlo di Florio. “In his short time at the commission, he has demonstrated excellent teamwork and collaboration across the SEC and with other regulators.”
