SEC Names Storch New Enforcement Executive

The Securities and Exchange Commission has tapped Adam Storch to be the managing executive of the newly created Division of Enforcement.

Acting as the chief operating officer, Storch will be responsible for the budget, information technology and administrative services, as well as project management and infrastructure workflow. He reports to Robert Khuzami, director of the division.

"Adam's skill in technology systems, workflow process and project management will greatly benefit the division, including in the critical areas of the distribution of fair funds to harmed investors and the processing and analysis of complaints, tips, and referrals," Khuzami said. "He will help to make us more efficient and nimble and permit us to put more of our investigators on the front lines to detect and stop fraud."

Storch joins the SEC from Goldman Sachs, where he was vice president of the firm's business intelligence group. Prior to Goldman Sachs, he was a senior consultant at Deloitte & Touche.

He received his MBA from New York University's Stern School of Business and his B.S. in business administration from SUNY Buffalo School of Management.
