The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) appointed Sanjay Wadhwa, an Indian American as their Deputy Director. Wadhwa most recently served as the senior associate director of the Division of Enforcement in the New York Regional Office (NYRO), where he managed more than 150 personnel in enforcing federal securities laws.
He will collaborate closely with the former New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who was recently appointed Director of the Division of Enforcement. “Sanjay brings a tenacious approach to our work, and he is passionate about protecting American investors,” said Grewal, in a SEC news release. “I am eager to work closely with him in his new role,” he added.
