IIROC has appointed Andrew J. Kriegler as its new president and CEO, effective November 1, 2014.

At that time, he’ll also become a member of IIROC’s board of directors. He’s succeeding Susan Wolburgh Jenah, who announced in April she’s stepping down as CEO at the end of October.

Kriegler currently serves as deputy superintendent of the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions, a position he took on in early 2013. He also has more than 25 years of experience in the financial services industry, with specialities in areas such as debt capital markets, securitization and fixed-income trading.

“I am honoured to have been selected to lead IIROC during such a pivotal time, as it develops its new strategic plan, [as well as] sets its priorities and direction for the next three years,” he says.

Ian Russell, president and CEO of IIAC, says, “Kriegler brings to the role a strong capital markets background and…he has a respected management background.” As well, he notes IIAC will work with the new IIROC head to continue to promote efficient markets.
