The Securities and Exchange Commission named Sarah ten Siethoff as the deputy director of the Division of investment management on Wednesday, a position she will take on while continuing to serve as associate director of the division's rule-making office.
"Sarah has provided invaluable counsel both as acting director of the division and as head of its rule-making office," said SEC Chairman Gary Gensler in a news release. "She brings skill, judgment and leadership to her service to the public, and I look forward to her many contributions in the new year."
Ms. ten Siethoff first joined the investment management division in 2008 and has served in a variety of roles, including as acting director of the division from January to December of 2021. She has served as the division's associate director since 2018.
"Sarah ten Siethoff provides extraordinary expertise and public service to the division of investment management," said William Birdthistle, director of the division, in the news release. "We rely deeply upon her leadership in her roles as both the division's deputy director and the head of our rule-making office and are grateful for her willingness to serve in both roles."
Ms. ten Siethoff is the recipient of the SEC's Phillip Loomis Award, the Excellence in Leadership Award and the Manuel F. Cohen Award, among others. Before joining the SEC, she worked as an associate for Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton in its New York and Washington offices. She earned her law degree from Yale Law School, holds a master's degree in international relations from Yale University, and received her bachelor's degree from the University of Virginia.
"I am honored to serve the commission in this new additional role and continue working with the talented staff in the division of investment management to advance the commission's important mission," Ms. Ten Siethoff said in the release.
Mr. Birdthistle also named Kaitlin Bottock and Thoreau Bartmann as co-chief counsels of the investment management division, who will serve alongside Ms. Ten Siethoff on the division's senior leadership team.
