Former markets regulator Eric Pan will join the Investment Company Institute as CEO on Nov. 9, succeeding Paul Schott Stevens, who is retiring from the $75 million-revenue association after 16 years in the corner office.
Pan currently is managing director of Rock Creek Global Advisors, an economic policy advisory firm, where he focuses on international financial regulatory and policy matters, according to a biography on the firm’s website.
The incoming ICI CEO previously had a long career in markets regulation. Pan is the former director of the Office of International Affairs at the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission. He was also the first head of international regulatory policy at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, where he was recruited to assist in the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act and the G-20 reforms.
