The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority announced it has appointed Bill St. Louis as the head of enforcement, effective immediately.
In a statement, Cook called St. Louis a valued company member.
“Bill’s broad and deep experience at FINRA, including his previous senior roles in Enforcement and Member Supervision, and his most recent position as head of the NCFC, will serve him well as Head of Enforcement. I am confident he will bring exemplary leadership, expertise, and vision to bear in his new role supporting the Enforcement department’s contributions to FINRA’s mission of investor protection and market integrity,” said Cook.
Most recently, St. Louis oversaw the NCFC team comprised of the National Cause Program, Financial Crimes Surveillance, the Financial Intelligence Unit, and specialized investigations units covering anti-money laundering and fraud, cybersecurity, high-risk representatives, and vulnerable adults and seniors.
“It is a privilege to lead such a talented and expert group of Enforcement professionals who are dedicated to FINRA’s mission of investor protection and market integrity,” St. Louis said in a statement. “I look forward to strengthening FINRA’s Regulatory Operations, ensuring integrated oversight, and increasing safety in the market as we advance our important work through the regulatory opportunities and challenges ahead.”
