Mr. Hoerl said, “I am honored that Chairman Cox has named me as Regional Director of the Denver Regional Office. I am privileged to have the opportunity to lead its dedicated and talented staff in meeting the many challenges facing the Commission and the investing public in these difficult times.” Mr. Hoerl has worked at the SEC since 1982, when he joined it as a Trial Counsel in the Denver Regional Office.
