New faces will be showing up this year at FINRA and the SEC.
Richard Ketchum, FINRA’s CEO, is set to retire. Ketchum told IA in early January that while he would prefer to hand over his CEO duties in the summer, he will stay on until the
FINRA Board’s search for a new CEO is completed.
The FINRA board’s search process — which is internal and external — just started in December, and it “tends to be a multi-month process,” Ketchum said. So any news on his replacement wouldn’t come till spring “at the earliest.”
