After completing his service as chief information office on June 30, Corey Booth parted ways with the Securities and Exchange Commission in order to pursue a new career with Boston Consulting Group in New York.
Booth first joined the SEC in January 2004 as CIO, responsible for the SECs information technology capabilities and ensuring that all technological investments supported the agencys overall mission.
Booth said, I have been honored and humbled every day to work with such talented people to achieve the honorable mission of the SEC. I am immensely proud of the information technology team's accomplishments over the last few years, and I'm confident that they are on track to even greater achievements in the future.
In the meantime, the SEC hired Korn/Ferry International to assist the agency in its process of searching for and identifying a new CIO.
During his four and a half years at the helm of the Office of Information Technology, Corey has dramatically improved the way that the SEC makes information available to investors and our markets, said SEC Chairman Christopher Cox.
He added, [Booth] has led the implementation of our interactive data initiative for mutual fund and company disclosures, and he has improved the SECs own financial reporting and internal operations as we work to protect investors. He will be long remembered and sorely missed.
