James Kroeker has been appointed as acting chief accountant for the SEC.
A statement released by departing chairman Christopher Cox said Kroeker will
be responsible for overseeing accounting interpretations, international
accounting matters and professional practice issues.
Kroeker, 39, replaces Conrad Hewitt, who retired from government service
Commenting on the appointment, Cox said Kroeker’s judgement in his prior role
of deputy chief accountant had been invaluable for investors and the regulator.
Prior to joining the SEC in February 2007, Kroeker was a partner at the
National Office Accounting Services Group within Deloitte and Touche LLP. He
also served as a Practice Fellow at the Financial Accounting Standards Board.
The announcement follows confirmation last year 2008 that Mary Schapiro is to
replace Cox as the new chair of the SEC.
