Washington (Oct. 27, 2003) -- The Securities and Exchange Commission reappointed Charles Niemeier to a five-year term at the Public company Accounting Oversight Board.

A CPA and an attorney, Niemeier served as interim chairman of the oversight board for six months after its first leader, former FBI chief William Webster, resigned when it was revealed that he headed the audit committee of a technology company under investigation for accounting irregularities.

Niemeier, a former chief accountant in the SEC’s Enforcement Division, spent time at Ernst & Young and Andersen, as well as the Washington, D.C. law firm of Williams & Connolly.
