The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that Gabriel Benincasa has been named the Commission’s first Chief Risk Officer.  This position was created by SEC Chairman Jay Clayton to strengthen the agency’s risk management and cybersecurity efforts.

As Chief Risk Officer, Mr. Benincasa will coordinate the SEC’s continued efforts to identify, monitor, and mitigate key risks facing the Commission.  Working within the SEC’s Office of the Chief Operating Officer, he will also serve as a key adviser on other matters related to enterprise risks and controls.  Julie Erhardt, who had been serving as Acting Chief Risk Officer while the SEC completed its recruitment efforts, will return to her role as Deputy Chief Accountant for Technology and Innovation in the Commission’s Office of the Chief Accountant.
