Brady to Head NASAA
NASAA, the state securities regulators’ group, has announced that it has named Joseph Brady executive director. Brady had been serving as acting executive director, in addition to his duties as general counsel, since the departure of Russ Iuculano, the organization’s former executive director, in September.
Brady joined NASAA in 2005 as associate counsel and was named general counsel in 2011. Prior to joining, he served as chief counsel to the securities division of the Mississippi Secretary of State.
FSR Adds, Promotes Lobbying Personnel
The Financial Services Roundtable added and promoted government affairs staffers and leaders dedicated to investment management, banking and fraud reduction in the financial sector.
Jill E. Hoffman will join FSR as vice president of Government Affairs for Investment Management. Hoffman hails from the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, where she has served as NAIFA’s chief lobbyist before the Senate Banking and House Financial Services committees since 2006.
FSR also promoted Anthony Cimino to senior vice president of Government Affairs to lead FSR’s efforts on insurance and will take on an expanded role on banking issues. Cimino joined FSR in 2012 and previously served as professional staff for the House Financial Services Committee. He played a central role in securing the passage of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA).
Roxane Schneider was also promoted to director of Fraud Risk. Schneider has been a key driver of FSR’s fraud reduction program for nearly five years, helping financial institutions examine risks and craft best practices and industry solutions to combat fraud.
