Mark A. Adler, a Harvard law graduate with experience in both the private and public sectors of the law and the Securities and Exchange Commission's assistant chief litigation counsel since 1997, has been promoted to the title of deputy chief litigation counsel for the enforcement division. Adler replaces Peter H. Bresnan, who was promoted earlier this year and is now an associate director of the same division.

"I am very pleased that Mark will be helping to lead our litigation program, which has expanded significantly over the last few years," said Stephen M. Cutler, director of the division of enforcement. "Mark is a brilliant trial lawyer with a deep commitment to enforcing the securities laws and protecting the nation's investors."
