Last week, President Donald Trump appointed Michael S. Piwowar as acting chairman of the SEC, since the chairman position was left vacant when Mary Jo White resigned.

Earlier this month, President Trump nominated Jay Clayton as chairman; however, confirmation hearings with Congress regarding this nomination have not yet started.

For more information, see Mr. Piwowar’s biography page on the SEC’s Web site.
