Paul F. Roye, director of the Securities and Exchange Commission's Division of Investment Management -- the division that polices the mutual fund industry -- is leaving to pursue a job in the private sector. Roye, who has served as the unit's director since 1998 and steered it through the explosive market-timing scandals affecting a number of large fund families, had been instrumental in orchestrating a number of initiatives at the regulator, including: o Strengthening the corporate governance regime for mutual funds; o Enhancing ethical standards for funds and investment advisers; and, o Requiring that funds and advisors adopt comprehensive compliance policies and procedures, and designate a chief compliance officer."It has been an honor and a privilege to serve America's investors as the director of the Division of Investment Management," Roye said in a statement. "I will miss my talented and dedicated colleagues in the division who, particularly during the challenges of recent months, have given their all to serve and protect America's investors." A successor has not been named.
