IIROC names Andrew J. Kriegler as President and CEO

TORONTO, Sept. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) today announced the appointment of Andrew J. Kriegler as the incoming IIROC President and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Kriegler will assume the position on November 1, 2014, and will also become a member of the IIROC Board of Directors at that time.

Mr. Kriegler currently serves as Deputy Superintendent of the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI), an executive position he has held since August 2013, with responsibility for the supervision of more than 400 federally regulated financial institutions. As President and CEO of IIROC, Mr. Kriegler will be responsible for leading the regulator which oversees all investment dealers and trading activity on debt and equity marketplaces in Canada.

Marianne Harris, Chair of the IIROC Board said: "Andrew Kriegler has an exceptional track record in the financial services industry, including extensive work supporting a regulatory framework that contributes to public confidence in a strong, stable and competitive financial system. As an industry veteran, he has shown strong leadership, particularly in risk management and investor protection.  Andrew's experience will be an important asset in leading our ongoing focus on delivering effective and efficient regulation."

Ms. Harris added: "The IIROC of today is a modern, respected and relevant regulator that is well positioned to build on our accomplishments and we are pleased to have Andrew joining us as we continue to fulfill our regulatory mandate."

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.
