The Securities and Exchange Commission's Office of the Chief Accountant chose six professional accounting fellows for two-year terms beginning in 2008.

They include Douglas K. Besch and Brian W. Fields, both senior managers in KPMG's Department of Professional Practice in New York; Douglas T. Parker, a senior manager in PricewaterhouseCoopers' Washington, D.C., practice office; Allison M. Patti, a senior manager in Deloitte & Touche's National Office Accounting Consultation Group in Wilton, Conn.; Evan B. Sussholz, a senior manager in Ernst & Young's Transaction Advisory Services Group in Chicago; and Arie S. Wilgenburg, a senior manager in Deloitte & Touche's National Office Accounting Consultation Group in San Francisco.

The six will join the current professional accounting fellows: Adam Brown, Muneera Carr, Jeffrey E. Ellis, Robert G. Fox III, Robert B. Malhotra, Liza McAndrew Moberg and Brett A. Williams. Outgoing professional accounting fellows are Mark J. Barrysmith, Ashley W. Carpenter, Sandie E. Kim and Katrina A. Kimpel.

The professional accounting fellows study and develop rule proposals under the federal securities laws, act as liaisons with accounting, auditing and other professional standard-setting bodies, and consult with registrants on reporting matters.
