Eric Pan, managing director of Rock Creek Global Advisors LLC, a Washington-based international economic policy advisory firm, has been elected the new president and CEO of the Investment Company Institute.
Pan, who will assume his new post on Nov. 9, succeeds Paul Schott Stevens, who is retiring at year-end after more than 16 years as ICI’s head.
Pan was associate director and the first head of International Regulatory Policy at the Securities and Exchange Commission from 2011-2015, and served as director of the Office of International Affairs at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission from 2015-2019 where he oversaw CFTC international initiatives.
Since January, Pan has served as a managing director at Rock Creek Global Advisors.
“I am honored to join ICI as its next president and chief executive,” Pan said in a statement. “ICI is an outstanding research organization and the leading voice for regulated funds and the shareholders they serve. I look forward to working with ICI’s members and top-flight staff to be a forceful and effective advocate for the interests of funds and their investors around the world.”
