The Securities and Exchange Commission announced Monday it has named John T. Dugan associate district administrator for enforcement in its Boston office, responsible for overseeing enforcement throughout New England.

Dugan succeeds David Bergers, who became head of the SEC’s Boston district office in April. Previously, as an assistant district administrator for enforcement, Dugan worked on market-timing cases against Prudential Securities and MFS Investments and has been with the SEC since 1999.

“John is a lawyer with considerable talent and experience,” commented Linda Thomsen, director of enforcement at the SEC. “He has also proven to be an excellent manager. I am confident that he will carry out the responsibilities of this important position with intelligence and effectiveness.”
