SEC Names Acting IM Division Head, New Chief Information Officer

The SEC this month named David Grim as the acting director of the Division of Investment Management, replacing former director Norm Champ, who left January 31.

Grim, who has been the Divisionís deputy director for the past two years, will presumably serve as acting director until a new director is hired. As deputy director, he oversaw all aspects of the Divisionís disclosure review, rulemaking, guidance and risk monitoring functions, the agency said.

Grim joined the SEC in September 1995 as a staff attorney in the Divisionís Office of Investment Company Regulation. He joined the Divisionís Office of Chief Counsel in January 1998, and was named assistant chief counsel in September 2007. He received his law degree from George Washington University, where he was managing editor of the George Washington Journal of International Law and Economics.

Separately, the agency this month named Pamela Dyson as its chief information officer in charge of overseeing the SECís information technology. She also served as acting CIO since October, and previously held key positions, including deputy CIO, in the agencyís Office of Information Technology. She joined the SEC in 2010.

As deputy CIO, Dyson was in charge of the agencyís information technology program and played a critical role in enhancing the SECís technological capabilities and modernization of key service delivery platforms and business applications. She "supervised the agencyís big data and data management initiatives to make it easier for users to quickly search and access critical data from a centralized source, implemented strategies to advance information security, and enhanced critical infrastructure operations," the agency said.

Before joining the SEC staff, she served as deputy CIO for the U.S. International Trade Commission. She holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Maryland.
