Washington, D.C., Dec. 8, 2011 – The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that Lacey Dingman has been named Director of the agency’s Office of Human Resources, which oversees and advises on the strategic management of the SEC’s human resources.
The Office of Human Resources (OHR) develops, implements, and evaluates the SEC’s programs and policies for staffing, recruitment, retention and separations. It has responsibility for compensation and benefits, performance management and awards, employee and labor relations, disability programs, work/life programs, telework, employee records, including financial disclosure, and professional development. In addition, OHR is the Commission’s liaison to the Office of Personnel Management, professional organizations, other federal agencies, educational institutions, and the private sector, on matters involving human capital management activities.
“Lacey is a skilled manager with an excellent track record and a reputation as someone who delivers results,” said SEC Chief Operating Officer Jeffery Heslop. “She has been a key participant in the organizational restructuring of the SEC Enforcement Division and she has the leadership skills that I believe will help make the SEC’s Office of Human Resources a model for others in government.”
Ms. Dingman has been Deputy Managing Executive in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, with responsibility for fulfilling the program’s staffing needs and providing advice and assistance on human capital planning and development. She also represented the Enforcement Division on the SEC’s Human Capital Advisory Committee, which has primary responsibility for setting policy on recruitment, training and development, performance management and employee and labor relations.
“I am honored to have been selected for this position,” Ms. Dingman said, “I am looking forward to my new role at the SEC and to working with the talented people in OHR and the employees within the agency that they support and assist.”

She was Personal Assistant to the Undersecretary of State from July 2007 to November 2008, when she returned to the CFTC as a business manager. Ms. Dingman received her bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Iowa.
