The Securities and Exchange Commission has promoted Kay Lackey to associate regional director for enforcement in the Commission’s New York regional office. Previously, she was an assistant regional director for enforcement in the office. She replaces Helene Glotzer, who has left the SEC to work in the private sector.
“Kay is an exceptionally talented and dedicated advocate for the investing public,” said Linda Chatman Thomsen, director of the SEC’s division of enforcement.
Lackey, who has worked in securities enforcement for 12 years, joined the SEC in 1995 as a staff attorney in the division of enforcement in the New York regional office. She became branch chief in 1997 and assistant regional director in 1998.
Prior to her work at the SEC, Lackey was a litigation associate with Mayer, Brown & Platt and Sherburne, Powers & Needham. She also served as a law clerk for Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts and for Judge Juan R. Torruella in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.
