Stephen Cutler, vice chairman of JPMorgan Chase and a former SEC enforcement director, was named Thursday to be a new Large-Firm Governor on the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s Board.
Cutler was appointed to complete the term of former Gov. Gregory Fleming, who resigned his board seat earlier this year.
Cutler joined JPMorgan as its general counsel in 2007 from the law firm of WilmerHale in Washington, where he was a partner and co-chair of the firm’s securities department. He served as director of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Enforcement Division from 2001 to 2005.
Before joining the SEC in 1999, he was a partner at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, where he worked for 11 years.
