Gary Goldsholle Leaving the SEC

October 11, 2018

Gary Goldsholle, who's served the securities industry for 23 years in various regulatory roles with the CFTC, FINRA, the MSRB, and the SEC, is stepping down as Deputy Director with the SEC's Division of Trading and Markets


Goldsholle joined the SEC staff in 2015 as a deputy director in the Division of Trading and Markets with responsibility for its Offices of Market Supervision, Chief Counsel, and Clearance and Settlement. In that role, he was substantially involved in many market structure initiatives, including the SEC’s approval of new national securities exchanges, approval of the plan to establish the Consolidated Audit Trail, and rulemakings to enhance operational transparency for alternative trading systems and expand order handling disclosures. 


More recently, Mr. Goldsholle served as a key member of the SEC’s Fintech Working Group, where he worked closely with other SEC divisions on cryptocurrency and digital asset security issues, including registration, custody, trading practices, and compliance for market participants seeking to conduct initial coin offerings and trade in digital asset securities.


Prior to joining the SEC, Gary served as General Counsel with the MSRB (2012 to 2014), FINRA (1997 to 2012), the CFTC (1995-1997), and Steptoe & Johnson (1991 to 1995).
