Mr. Kriegler joined OSFI as Assistant Superintendent, Supervision Sector, in February 2013. He has more than 25 years of experience in the financial services industry, including executive positions in treasury and human resources and in areas such as debt capital markets, securitization and fixed income trading.
"I am honoured to have been selected by the Board to lead IIROC during such a pivotal time - as the regulator develops its new Strategic Plan and sets its priorities and direction for the next three years. Together with the dedicated management team and talented staff, we will continue to work diligently to advance IIROC's mandate of protecting investors, strengthening industry standards and enhancing market integrity," said Mr. Kriegler.
Mr. Kriegler will succeed Susan Wolburgh Jenah who, earlier in the year, announced her intention to step down from her role as IIROC's inaugural President and CEO effective October 31, 2014.
"On behalf of the Board, I also want to extend our deepest appreciation to Susan for her vision, hard work and unrelenting commitment. IIROC has been fortunate to have had her leading the organization throughout a transformative period in financial markets," said Ms. Harris.
