The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that Robert Evans III has been named Chief of the Office of International Corporate Finance in the agencys Division of Corporation Finance. The office spearheads the divisions outreach to non-U.S. issuers that access the U.S. capital markets.

I look forward to working with him as we support Chairman Claytons goal of facilitating a broader range of investment opportunities for Main Street investors.
