Marc Panucci, a partner at PwC‘s national professional services group, has been named deputy chief accountant of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
SEC said Wednesday Panucci will lead its professional practice group’s activities and oversee tasks of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.
He worked at SEC as senior associate chief accountant from 2007 to 2010 and will return to the commission to succeed Brian Croteau later this month.
“Marc’s prior experience as an SEC senior associate chief accountant as well as his expertise and wealth of experience in public accounting will provide critical service to investors, companies and the Commission,” said Wesley Bricker, SEC interim chief accountant.
Panucci has more than two decades of public accounting, standard-setting and regulatory experience.
He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountant’s Auditing Standards Board.
