Quarles also expressed the FSB’s appreciation for Norman Chan’s effective chairmanship of the SRC and commitment to the FSB since he became a member in October 2009.

In his role with the Japanese Financial Services Agency, Himino has supervised banks, insurance companies, broker-dealers, and audit firms as well as regulated capital markets during the last two decades.

He also served as the Secretary General of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision from 2003 to 2006.
