Kenneth Johnson Named SEC's CFO

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has promoted Kenneth Johnson to chief financial officer (CFO). Johnson has been serving as acting CFO for much of the past year. The agency’s CFO is responsible for leading its office of financial management, which handles the budget, finance, and accounting operations for the SEC.

Johnson joined the SEC in 2003 as a management analyst in the office of the executive director. In that role, he advised on all aspects of the budget process, developed strategy initiatives, and responded to inquiries from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and Congress regarding the SEC’s budget and financial operations. He became chief management analyst in 2006. Johnson has served as a valuable staff expert on legislative proposals, and he managed the development of the SEC’s long-range Strategic Plan that would guide agency policy through 2015.

Prior to joining the SEC staff, Johnson worked as a commerce analyst at the Congressional Budget Office. His primary responsibility in that role was to analyse and report on the budgetary effects of committee-approved legislation.

Johnson earned his Masters in Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and earned his BA at Stanford University.
