as chief financial officer at the US audit watchdog.

Carpenter has worked in federal government for 32 years and has been with the
SEC since 1997. Chadwick, a qualified CPA with an MA in accounting, joins the

‘She is exceptionally well-suited to build upon the SEC’s recent successful
efforts to bolster its internal controls and financial management practices,’
Cox said.

Chadwick said: ‘ Given the SEC’s responsibilities for overseeing public
companies and other participants in the securities markets, it is critically
important that the agency manage its finances in just as exemplary a fashion.’
