Jennifer Duggins was named senior specialized examiner and co-head of the SEC’s private funds unit within the office of compliance inspections and examinations, an SEC official confirmed.
Ms. Duggins will start later this month. Current co-head Marc Wyatt, who is acting director of the OCIE, will relinquish the co-head position, which is shared by Igor Rozenblit.
The private fund unit focuses on practices at hedge funds and private equity firms.
Ms. Duggins was previously a director in KPMG’s financial services regulatory practice and chief compliance officer with Chilton Investment Co.
