ACA Compliance Group (“ACA”) is pleased to announce that Jorge A. Rodriguez will be transferring from ACA’s Los Angeles office to work in San Francisco. Jorge has been with ACA since August 2011. In San Francisco he will continue to lead compliance examinations and advise investment advisers and private fund managers on various compliance matters.
Prior to joining ACA, Jorge served as Compliance Officer at Trust Company of the West and as an Examiner in the Pacific Regional Office of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). While at the SEC, Jorge trained new examiners to conduct inspections and participated in “sweep” examinations involving market timing and late trading. Jorge has taken part in over 70 actual or mock inspections of investment advisers, private funds, and investment companies.
“The expansion of our ACA footprint in San Francisco is a major goal for the firm in 2013 and we are excited to have Jorge join our team covering the Bay Area,” Partner Jeff Morton said. “As the SEC ramps up to begin conducting widespread presence examinations of private equity and hedge fund firms, his combination of industry and regulatory experience will greatly benefit our clients here.”
Jorge earned a B.S. in Business Administration from the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, a J.D. from the UCLA School of Law, and an MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
