The Securities and Exchange Commission has appointed Robert Malhotra as a senior advisor in the SEC’s Office of the Chief Accountant.

He was formerly a senior manager with KPMG LLP, where he worked in the firm’s Department of Professional Practice. At the SEC, he will advise senior officers on complex accounting and auditing matters, and will help develop strategic objectives to support the SEC’s agenda.

Malhotra has been serving as a professional accounting fellow in the Office of the Chief Accountant, focusing on matters such as accounting for consolidations, financial assets, business combinations and post-retirement benefit arrangements.

“I am very pleased that Bob has agreed to take on a senior advisory role,” said SEC Acting Chief Accountant James L. Kroeker in a statement. “His expertise with issues associated with fair value measurements and off-balance-sheet arrangements, along with his judgment in dealing with complex issues, will benefit OCA, the capital markets and investors.”
