Kayla J. Gillan, a former deputy chief of staff at the Securities and Exchange Commission and founding member of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, has been tapped to lead PricewaterhouseCoopers’ new Investors’ Resource Institute. 

Gillan, 54, joined PwC in 2011 after serving as deputy chief of staff to SEC chairman Mary Schapiro. As one of the original PCAOB board members, she served from 2003 to early 2008, once the PCAOB was established as a result of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Gillan joined the PCAOB after 16 years at the California Public Employees’ Retirement System, including six years as CalPERS’ general counsel. Just before joining the SEC in early 2009, she was chief administrative officer for RiskMetrics Group, which is now part of MSCI.
