Victor Valdez, formerly deputy director of strategic planning and corporate programs for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.‘s corporate university, has joined the Securities and Exchange Commission‘s enforcement division as chief operating officer and managing executive.
He will begin his new role on Sept. 22 and be responsible for the division’s project management, information technology, human capital strategy and risk management services, the SEC said Monday.
“Vic brings an impressive breadth of management and planning experience to the critical position of managing executive,” said Andrew Ceresney, director of the SEC’s enforcement division.
Valdez most recently oversaw FDIC’s strategic planning and resource management within that agency’s risk management supervision division.
He has previously served as chief of staff for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence‘s national counterintelligence executive and chief of staff for the National Counterterrorism Center’s deputy director for operations support.
Valdez was a special agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations during his 20-year career as an officer with the U.S. Air Force.
