Jurata, whose term will expire on Oct. 24, 2024, currently serves as special assistant to the President for Financial Policy and is responsible for advising the President and the National Economic Council Director on an array of financial services policy matters.

“Rebekah brings significant public service experience, including at the SEC, and a deep understanding of our financial markets, that will complement the skills that Bill, Jay, Jim, and Duane bring to the Board,” SEC Chairman Jay Clayton said.

The PCAOB is responsible for overseeing the audits of public companies and broker-dealers, officials said, as a means of protecting the interests of investors while advancing public interest in the preparation of informative, accurate and independent audit reports.

“I am honored to continue to serve the public as a Board member of the PCAOB,” Jurata said. “I look forward to working with my fellow Board members to protect investors and strengthen audit quality.”

Clayton said, in addition to Jurata’s appointment, SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce has been chosen to lead the agency’s coordination efforts with the PCAOB Board, in coordination with Chief Accountant Sagar Teotia and the Office of the Chief Accountant.
