The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has announced a raft of new executive staff members.
Amanda Fischer, Lisa Helvin, Tejal Shah, Angelica Annino, Liz Bloom, Basmah Nada, and Jahvonta Mason will all act alongside Gary Gensler, chair of the body.
As senior counselor, Fischer will advise Gensler with SEC rulemakings and interagency work.
Gensler said: “I had the honor to work closely with Amanda during the Biden-Harris transition, and her counsel during my confirmation process was invaluable. I’m delighted she’s joined the team.”
Helvin has been named as legal advisor, having rejoined the SEC from the Office of General Counsel at the House of Representatives, while Shah will serve as principal advisor on matters involving the division of enforcement.
Moreover, Annino and Bloom have been named as director of scheduling and administration and speechwriter to the chair respectively.
Finally, Nada will act as digital director at the body, with Mason as special assistant to the chief of staff.
Gensler added: “I’m excited to work closely with Amanda, Lisa, Tejal, Angelica, Liz, Basmah, and Jahvonta on priorities essential to the mission of the SEC.
“These exceptional individuals provide well-rounded and diverse experience from across multiple sectors, and I will rely on the counsel and support in rulemaking, enforcement, and communicating our work to the public.”
