Washington (March 31, 2003) - Jackson Day, acting chief accountant at the Securities and Exchange Commission, will leave the financial regulator for a post in the private sector.
Day, 39, will remain in his role for an interim period while the SEC conducts a search for a successor.
Day was named acting chief accountant last year when incumbent accounting head Robert Herdman resigned following a storm of controversy over his support of former FBI director William Webster as chairman of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. Webster later resigned.
A former partner at Big Four firm Ernst & Young, Day came to the SEC in 2000.
