The Securities and Exchange Commission announced Thursday that Pamela C. Dyson has been named the SEC’s chief information officer in charge of overseeing the agency’s information technology functions.
In her new role as head of the SEC’s Office of Information Technology, Dyson will work SEC Chairwoman Mary Jo White, the agency’s commissioners as well as its divisions and offices to incorporate technology into SEC programs.
“Pam has been instrumental in our ongoing efforts to enhance the Commission’s information technology capabilities,” said White in a statement. “I am confident she will provide the expertise, leadership and vision necessary to further advance the Commission’s technology operations.
Dyson has served as acting CIO since October 2014, and has held key positions in the Office of Information Technology since she came to the commission in 2010, including deputy CIO.
“Pam is a strong and effective leader who will continue to provide a strategic vision on all major SEC information technology initiatives,” said Jeff Heslop, the agency’s chief operating officer. “The OIT team as well as the entire commission will benefit from her seamless transition to CIO.”
