Who's the jokester in SEC's Forth Worth office?

November 17, 2017

By CNBC

While the Securities and Exchange Commission is best known as the no-nonsense arm of U.S. financial law, one regional branch takes its role a little more humorously online. Shamoil Shipchandler, regional director of the SEC's Fort Worth, Texas, office, said Wednesday he is the one who has "tweeted hundreds of jokes" from the agency's Twitter account. "When I became the Fort Worth director, one of the things I noticed is that we have a number of different ways to connect to the world at large. The most common way is through enforcement action announcements, but we also want to be able to educate people about the tools to protect against fraud," Shipchandler said.
