Robert S. Khuzami is following the quintessential Washington script: an influential government insider becoming a paid advocate for industries he once policed.

The Securities and Exchange Commission named a veteran agency prosecutor, George Canellos, to be its acting enforcement chief on Thursday, positioning him as one of the top cops on Wall Street.


Robert Khuzami is the Director of Enforcement at the Securities and Exchange Commission. He was appointed to the position in February 2009.[1]

Prior to joining the SEC, Mr. Khuzami served as a federal prosecutor for 11 years with the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York. As Chief of that Office's Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force for three years, he prosecuted numerous complex securities and white-collar criminal matters, including those involving insider trading, Ponzi schemes, accounting and financial statement fraud, organized crime infiltration of the securities markets, and IPO and investment adviser fraud. He also served as General Counsel for the Americas at Deutsche Bank AG between 2004 and 2010.

Mr. Khuzami was awarded the Attorney General's Exceptional Service Award (1996), given for "extraordinary courage and voluntary risk of life in performing an act resulting in direct benefits to the Department of Justice or the nation." He also received the Federal Law Enforcement Foundation's Federal Prosecutor Award (1997), and the Henry L. Stimson Award for Outstanding Public Service (2001).

He received his J.D. from the Boston University School of Law, and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Rochester.
