The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that Myron Marlin will be leaving the SEC after nearly five years as communications director, serving under chairs Mary Jo White, Elisse B. Walter, and Mary L. Schapiro.
Since joining the SEC in March 2009, Mr. Marlin coordinated communications strategy on a range of significant issues including the agency’s landmark policy of seeking admissions in certain enforcement settlements and major rulemakings stemming from the Dodd-Frank Act and the JOBS Act.
“Myron is an extraordinary professional and advisor,” said Chair White. “His substantial knowledge of the agency, judgment, and keen sense of effective communications have been invaluable to me. I will miss him and his counsel greatly.”
Mr. Marlin said, “It has been an incredible privilege for me to serve under three chairs and alongside so many talented and dedicated public servants who perform work that is so crucial to investors and our nation’s economic well-being. I am honored to have been at the SEC during a period of such intense rulemaking, record enforcement activity, and regulatory reform.”
Prior to joining the SEC, Mr. Marlin worked for a communications consulting firm. Previously as director of public affairs at the U.S. Department of Justice, he received the Edmund J. Randolph Award for outstanding service. Prior to working at the Department of Justice, he was an associate at a law firm in New York. Mr. Marlin received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and his law degree from American University.
