The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board announced that chief administrative officer Paul Schneider and public affairs director Christi Harlan will leave the board this month.   Schneider joined the PCAOB in January 2003 as interim chief administrative officer, taking responsibility for a variety of start-up related activities. He was named chief administrative officer four months later.   PCAOB Chairman Mark Olson said Schneider was instrumental in leading the selection of key personnel to head the board’s administrative offices, including information technology, finance, human resources and facilities management, as well as managing the budget and design aspects of the board’s benefit plans.   Before joining the board, Schneider was the managing principal of Vector Recovery Group LLC, a turnaround management firm that provided restructuring and crisis management services. He has not announced his future plans.   Harlan joined the board in April 2003, and said in a statement that she would be leaving to seek a new venture in public service. Harlan came to the PCAOB from the Securities and Exchange Commission, where she served as public affairs director from January 2002 until April 2003. Prior to her SEC service, Harlan was director of external affairs at the Federal Emergency Management Agency and communications director for the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs.
