The US markets regulator is to hold a roundtable today that will see five
former chairmen as part of the panel.

for small and middle-sized companies – may be discussed.
Participants in the roundtable will include:
• William H. Donaldson, who headed up the SEC from 2003-05, and currently
serves as chairman of Donaldson Enterprises;
• Harvey L. Pitt, who headed up the SEC from 2001-03, the chief executive
founder of Kalorama Partners;
• Arthur Levitt, who headed up the SEC
from 1993-2001, now a senior advisor with the Carlyle Group;
• David S. Ruder, who headed up the SEC from 1987-89, and the current William W.
Gurley Memorial Professor of Law at Northwestern School of Law; and,
• Roderick M. Hills, who headed up the SEC from 1975-77, and now a partner at
Hills and Stern LLP.
The one-hour roundtable is scheduled to begin at 5 pm (ET) in Washington, and
