Most recently Heslop was managing vice president for information risk management at Capital One Financial Corporation. He was charged with developing and implementing risk policies, standards and practices, and internal controls while at the company.
In a statement, SEC Chairman Mary Schapiro, said, “The creation of the Chief Operating Officer position will enhance our ongoing effort to refocus our resources and make this agency more efficient and effective. Jeff brings a great depth of private sector experience with technology development and management assessment, and he has developed the expertise necessary to ensure seamless oversight of our wide-ranging technology improvements and other operational functions of the agency.”
Heslop will report directly to Schapiro and will oversee the operations of the SEC’s Office of Information Technology (OIT); the finance and accounting functions of the SEC’s Office of Financial Management (OFM); and the SEC’s Office of FOIA, Privacy & Records Management.
