The Securities and Exchange Commission has appointed Deputy Chief Accountant Wesley Bricker to the chief accountant role held by James Schnurr on an interim basis as Schnurr recovers from injuries sustained in a bicycle accident.

The SEC said Thursday Bricker will serve as the agency’s principal accounting and auditing adviser and also help oversee the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.

Bricker will also consult with registrants, auditors and other industry representatives.

“Wes’ expert knowledge, leadership and analytic skills and Jim’s expertise and wealth of experience will continue to provide critical service to investors, companies and the Commission,” said Mary Jo White, SEC chair.

Bricker was appointed deputy chief accountant in 2015 with responsibility for audit and accounting advice to the agency and he also worked with private sector organizations such as FASB.
