PCCE Seeks A New Executive Director

After a wonderful and successful spring semester, PCCE’s current Executive Director, Pablo Quiñones, is transitioning out of that role to start his own law practice, Quiñones Law PLLC. Although brief, Pablo’s tenure as Executive Director was extraordinary. With his help, PCCE substantially increased its law blog readership and held four events, including a full day conference on cybersecurity and a fireside chat with the General Counsel and Solicitor of the SEC. The most recent event, “ICOs and Cryptocurrency: Innovation Meets Regulation,” was planned and executed entirely by Pablo and was held before a packed audience.  While we will miss Pablo, he will continue to contribute to PCCE as a Senior Fellow and an Editor of the Compliance and Enforcement law blog, and plans to moderate a panel on compliance monitors at our annual fall conference on October 12, 2018.  Please join us in recognizing Pablo’s accomplishments and in thanking him for his exemplary service as PCCE’s Executive Director. 

It is time now to search for a new Executive Director.

We are looking for candidates with enforcement experience who are interested in important policy issues concerning both enforcement and compliance.  The position may be particularly attractive to lawyers transitioning from government service to private practice. While we would prefer a candidate who would be interested in working with us long term, we had such a wonderful experience with Pablo, that we will consider a short-term arrangement as well in the case of a highly qualified person, for example someone transitioning out of government.
