Paul Beswick named deputy chief accountant at US watchdog

The US Securities and Exchange Commission has named Paul Beswick as its new
permanent deputy chief accountant, following the promotion of Jim Kroeker to
chief accountant.

Beswick’s responsibilities will include overseeing the accounting group
within the SEC, resolution of accounting issues, rulemaking projects and
oversight of private sector accounting standard setting.

He initially joined the SEC in October 2007 as a senior adviser to the chief
accountant before moving over to become deputy chief accountant for professional
practice in September 2008.

“I am pleased that Paul has agreed to transition to this important role,”
said Kroeker. “Paul’s knowledge and expertise in financial reporting will be a
valuable resource to our office, this agency, and investors. I am confident that
he will continue to perform in an outstanding manner for the Commission.”
