Neimeier, a chartered public accountant and lawyer, served as interim chairman of the PCAOB for six months following the resignation of its first head, former FBI chief William Webster.

Webster stepped down when it was revealed that he headed the audit committee of a company under investigation for accounting irregularities.

Neimeier has worked at the SEC before, as chief accountant of the enforcement division. He has also worked at Ernst & Young, Anderson and Washington DC law firm Williams & Connolly.
