Andrew Calamari Leaving the SEC
On the eve of his 5-year anniversary as Director of the SEC’s New York Regional Office, Andrew Calamari is leaving the agency. It was on October 17, 2012, that the SEC announced Mr. Calamari as successor to George Canellos, who had been promoted to Deputy Director of Enforcement earlier that year.
Mr. Calamari joined the SEC as a staff attorney in 2000, and rose through the ranks to his leadership position. Mr. Calamari had served as the Senior Associate Director and co-head of Enforcement for the New York Regional Office since 2004. He has not said where he will work next.
As far as honors and awards:
- In 2003, he received the agency’s Arthur F. Mathews Award, which is awarded annually to an SEC employee who has been consistently creative in applying the federal securities laws for the benefit of investors.
- In 2008, Mr. Calamari received the Stanley Sporkin Award, which is one of the SEC’s top awards for its enforcement officials.
- In 2004 and 2013, Mr. Calamari received the SEC and NTEU Labor-Management Relations Award, which honors SEC staff who have contributed significantly to labor-management relations.
Prior to joining the SEC, Calamari had been in private practice for 15 years, including at Donovan Leisure Newton & Irvine. The New York firm was founded by William "Wild Bill" Donovan, who then went on to lead a CIA predecessor agency. The firm shut down in 1998.
Calamari earned his law degree at Fordham Law.
