The Securities and Exchange Commission has filled the post of director of the division of enforcement from within. Linda Chatman Thomsen, formerly deputy director of that division, takes the place of Stephen M. Cutler, who announced in April that he was leaving the SEC for the private sector.

"Linda is a highly accomplished attorney with a proven record of effective advocacy on behalf of the nation's investors," said SEC Chairman William H. Donaldson. "The skills Linda has exhibited during her tenure at the Commission instill great confidence in her ability to lead this important division."
