SEC's Scott Friestad Passes Away
Scott Friestad, who had served as Associate Director in the the SEC Enforcement Division since 2005, passed away Wednesday, April 4. The cause of death was cancer, a disease Scott had fought with great strength and grace.
Prior to joining the SEC, Scott was a litigator for six years at Dewey Ballantine in New York. He received both his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Iowa.
In his 22-year career at the Commission, Scott achieved great success, including earning the Commission’s highest award for service to America’s investors and leading some of our most important enforcement actions. Scott’s success and impact went far beyond awards and victories. He was happiest when his team members did well, both in results and in approach. Scott was committed to enforcing our securities laws with due process to all and always with an eye toward the Commission’s role in protecting and enhancing our capital markets. His integrity, leadership and dedication are an enduring legacy.
Scott leaves behind a wonderful family – his wife Kimberly and his sons Thomas and Wilson – whom he loved dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and we thank them for sharing Scott with us. Scott also leaves behind countless current and former colleagues whose careers and lives are much better for having known Scott.
Thank you, Scott.
