Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) today announced the appointment of Ms Maureen Garrett, Deputy Chief Counsel of the Commission, as Interim Head of Enforcement.
She will lead the Enforcement Division pending the completion of a campaign to find a permanent replacement to Mark Steward who is set leave the SFC to assume a similar position at the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority.
Ms Garrett joined the Legal Services Division of the SFC in 1999. She has extensive experience leading the SFC’s enforcement litigation work in Hong Kong’s courts and tribunals. In that capacity she has worked closely with the Enforcement Division over many years.
Mr Ashley Alder, the SFC’s Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“Maureen’s interim appointment will ensure that our enforcement work will continue to operate at full strength pending the appointment of a permanent replacement for Mark”.
