The Securities and Exchange Commission today named agency veteran Meyer Eisenberg to the post of acting director of the commission's Division of Investment Management. Eisenberg will fill on an interim basis the void created by the recent departure of division director Paul Roye, who left the SEC for a job in the private sector. Since 1998, Eisenberg has served as deputy general counsel for the commission. He previously served at the SEC from 1959 to 1970. During that period, he was the executive assistant to then-chairman Manuel F. Cohen. Current Chairman William Donaldson said in a statement, "Mike is a distinguished member of the securities bar and his history of service to the commission and to the investing public is unmatched." The SEC is actively seeking a full-time replacement for Roye.
