Hogan Lovells partner Eun Ah Choi will join the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission next week as the managing executive of the Division of Investment Management.
Choi, who represented publicly and privately held companies, boards of directors, and investment banks at Hogan Lovell's corporate department, will start the job August 19, the SEC announced yesterday. She will lead the division that regulates the asset management industry to protect investors and promote informed investment decisions.
"We are very pleased to announce that Eun Ah is joining the division," Norm Champ, the investment management division director, said in a statement. "She brings a wealth of legal, analytical and management experience, and she will be a vital asset in our continuing improvement project called 'IM Moving Ahead.'"
Choi has significant experience managing and coordinating organization-wide efforts to develop, improve and streamline operational, technological and legal procedures, controls and standards, the SEC statement said.
Choi worked as an analyst at Goldman, Sachs & Co. prior to joining Hogan.
