    Tuesday Plenary, August 3, 8:30 am - 9:45 am

    James L. Kroeker is the Chief Accountant of the Securities and Exchange Commission. In this capacity, Mr. Kroeker serves as the principal advisor to the Commission on accounting and auditing matters.


    Since joining the Commission as Deputy Chief Accountant in February 2007, Mr. Kroeker has played a key role in efforts to improve the transparency and reduce the complexity of financial disclosure. For example, he recently served as staff director of the SEC's congressionally mandated study of fair value accounting standards, and he has led the efforts of the Office of the Chief Accountant to address the current economic turmoil, including steps to improve off-balance-sheet accounting guidelines. Mr. Kroeker also served as the Designated Federal Officer responsible for the staff oversight of the SEC's Advisory Committee on Improvements to Financial Reporting. He also has been responsible for the day-to-day operations of the office's accounting group, including resolution of accounting practice issues, rulemaking, and oversight of private sector standard-setting efforts.

    Prior to joining the SEC, Mr. Kroeker was a partner at Deloitte & Touche LLP in the firm's National Office Accounting Services Group and was responsible for providing consultation and support regarding the implementation, application, communication and development of accounting standards, including disclosure and reporting matters. Mr. Kroeker was Deloitte & Touche's representative on the AICPA Accounting Standards Executive Committee (AcSEC). Mr. Kroeker also served as a Practice Fellow at the Financial Accounting Standards Board.

    Mr. Kroeker received a Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in accounting from the University of Nebraska in May 1992.
