The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that Jennifer Marietta-Westberg has been named Deputy Director of its Division of Risk, Strategy, and Financial Innovation (RSFI).

The SEC created the Division of Risk, Strategy, and Financial Innovation in September 2009 to help inform the agency's policymaking, rulemaking, enforcement, and examinations. The division provides economic analysis, quantitative research, and risk assessment, and its staff has expertise in a variety of academic disciplines and deep knowledge of the financial industry and markets.

Dr. Marietta-Westberg will oversee the division's policy and rulemaking support functions, particularly its economic analysis in support of SEC policy and rulemaking. In addition, she will assist with the overall management of the division, working closely with RSFI Director and Chief Economist Craig Lewis and the division's other Deputy Director, Kathleen Weiss Hanley.

Dr. Lewis said, "Dr. Marietta-Westberg is already a valued member of the division with a wealth of experience in performing complex economic analysis to support the SEC's policy initiatives. I am delighted that she will be able to bring her experience and leadership to this new and vital role."

"I am honored to take on this new role and to continue to work with the talented staff in the division to provide robust economic analysis that helps inform the Commission's policy choices," Dr. Marietta-Westberg said.

Dr. Marietta-Westberg joined the SEC in 2006 as a Visiting Scholar in what was then the Office of Economic Analysis. In 2010, she was named Assistant Director of what is now the Office of Investments and Intermediaries within RSFI, where she oversaw economic analyses in support of policy and rulemaking recommendations by the SEC's Division of Investment Management and its Division of Trading and Markets. Before coming to the SEC, Dr. Marietta-Westberg was an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University. She graduated from the University of Iowa in 2000 with a Ph.D. in Finance.
