SEC Names 2 Professional Accounting Fellows

Timothy M. Kviz and Joseph B. Ucuzoglu, have been named preofessional accounting fellows by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) Office of the Chief Accountant. Both will serve two year terms beginning in June 2005.

“This is an exciting time to join the Securities and Exchange Commission and, in particular, the Office of the Chief Accountant. The candidates went through a highly competitive process, and the quality of the individuals who applied for these positions speaks volumes about the importance of our role as the investor’s advocate. Time and Joe are two highly skilled and talented individuals, and their experience and knowledge will be invaluable,” Chief Accountant Donald T. Nicolaisen said in a written statement.

The new accounting fellows will be studying and developing rule proposals under the federal securities laws, consulting on accounting and reporting matters and acting as liaisons to professional accounting and auditing bodies charged with setting professional standards.
