U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission chairman Gary Gensler named Alex Oh, a former federal prosecutor, to lead the regulator's vaunted enforcemen­t unit that polices Wall Street. “Alex brings to the role of director the right combinatio­n of values and experience to vigorously root out wrongdoing,” Gensler, pictured, said in a Thursday statement. Oh was most recently a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison. She previously served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, where she was a member of the office's securities and commoditie­s fraud task force. Gensler, who was sworn in last week, is expected to take a much harder line in pursuing misconduct at the Securities and Exchange Commission than watchdogs did during the Trump administra­tion.
