Levitt Takes Knowledge on The Road

Beginning this week, former Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Arthur Levitt will visit six cities to discuss "Meeting the Compliance Challenge: Issues, Risks and Rewards."

Levitt, who served as the SEC’s longest running chairman from 1993 to 2001, will share his insights from his distinguished career in the finance arena. In the sessions, which are hosted by Hyperion, Levitt will offer advice to CFOs grappling with a new compliance environment, mandated by last year’s Sarbanes-Oxley Act, among other topics.

Besides serving as SEC chairman, Levitt formerly owned the Roll Call newspaper, served as chairman of the New York City Economic Development Corporation, was Chairman of the American Stock Exchange from 1978 to 1989 and worked on Wall Street for 16 years. He is also the author of Take on the Street.

Hyperion issued a release on the seminars saying that Levitt will deliver his perspective on global compliance with new financial regulations. The series will also feature a panel discussion moderated by David Blansfield, publisher of Business Finance magazine. Scheduled panelists include leading executives from Fortune 2000 companies already working to meet the compliance challenge.

"We know our customers are facing the challenges of global compliance regulations every day, and we want to fully prepare them with the resources they need to optimize performance and mitigate risk," said Nazhin Zarghamee, chief marketing officer for Hyperion. "Arthur Levitt is well-known for empowering individuals and investors by educating them about current regulations and how to protect themselves. Now, he will do the same for companies, talking with them about how to manage risk in today’s harsh economic environment."

There is still time to attend seminars in Atlanta, GA on October 14; Chicago, IL on October 15; and Los Angeles, CA on October 17. For more information or to register for this event, please visit http//www.hyperion.com/levitt.
