SEC Regional Director to Leave Atlanta Office

October 17, 2017

Walter Jospin, the Regional Director of the Atlanta office, is leaving the SEC.  He’ll remain until a successor is selected.


Since February 2015, Mr. Jospin has led a staff of approximately 100 attorneys, accountants, compliance examiners, and other specialists involved in compliance inspections and the investigation and prosecution of SEC enforcement actions in the Atlanta region. 


“Serving as Director of the Atlanta Regional Office has been an extraordinary opportunity, second only to working as an SEC enforcement lawyer early in my career.  Both experiences have given me the chance to work with smart, talented people committed to the Commission’s mission.  The SEC is an outstanding agency, and I will miss my wonderful colleagues.  It has indeed been an honor to lead the Atlanta office.” - -  Walter Jospin


Mr. Jospin joined the SEC from the law firm of Paul Hastings LLP, where he was a long-time partner in the Atlanta office with a practice focusing on securities enforcement, internal investigations, corporate transactions, and corporate governance.  Mr. Jospin previously worked in the SEC Enforcement Division from 1980 to 1983 in the Atlanta office.  He graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and from the Emory University School of Law.
