Robert M. Fisher was named managing executive of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s office of compliance inspections and examinations, the SEC announced Tuesday.
Mr. Fisher succeeds Peter B. Driscoll, who was named chief risk and strategy officer in OCIE’s newly created office of risk and strategy. The new office, which will streamline risk assessment, market surveillance and quantitative analysis, “will lead our exam program’s risk-based, data-driven, and transparent approach to protecting investors,” said Marc Wyatt, director of the office of compliance inspections and examinations, in a statement.
Mr. Driscoll will also manage staff members who examine investment advisers and companies.
Mr. Fisher will oversee the office’s business operations, technology services, examiner training, and tips, complaints and referrals programs. He served as OCIE assistant director since 2014.
