Mr. Cohen joined the SEC staff in 2006 as Deputy General Counsel for Legal Policy and Administrative Practice, and joined the Chairman’s office in May 2008. “Alex has done outstanding work for the benefit of investors,” said Chairman Christopher Cox. “His service to all of the Commissioners, and the close working relationships he developed with Commission staff in each of the Divisions and Offices, were exemplary. The SEC and the nation are fortunate to have had a leader of his caliber in these critical times.”
