Harvey Pitt Biography

Harvey L. Pitt is the founder, chief executive officer and a managing director of the global business consulting firm, Kalorama Partners, LLC, and its law firm affiliate, Kalorama Legal Services, PLLC. Prior to founding the Kalorama firms in 2003, Pitt served as the twenty-sixth chairman of the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission. In that role, from 2001 until 2003, Pitt was responsible, among other things, for overseeing the SEC’s response to the market disruptions resulting from the terrorist attacks of 9/11, for creating the SEC’s “real time enforcement” program and for leading the Commission’s unanimous adoption of dozens of rules in response to the corporate and accounting crises generated by the excesses of the 1990s.

For nearly a quarter of a century before becoming SEC Chairman, Pitt was a senior corporate partner of Fried, Frank LLP, an international law firm, and served as co-chair of the firm (1998-2001). He was a founding trustee and first president of the SEC Historical Society. Pitt appears regularly as a commenter on major televised news programs, and is a frequent speaker on a wide variety of issues, including economics, regulation of capital and financial markets, corporate governance, business ethics, accounting and legislative matters. Pitt has served as an adjunct faculty member at the George Washington University Law School (Market Regulation, 1974-82), Georgetown University Law Center (Fraud and Fiduciary Duties, 1975-84), the University of Pennsylvania School of Law (Fraud and Fiduciary Duties, and Takeover Law, 1983-84) and The Yale Law School (Corporate Governance, 2007).

Pitt served previously on the staff of the SEC (1968-78), including three years as Commission’s General Counsel (1975-78). Pitt received a Juris Doctor degree from St. John’s University School of Law (1968), and his Bachelor of Arts degree from the City University of New York (Brooklyn College) (1965). He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree by St. John’s University (2002), and received the “Brooklyn College President’s Medal of Distinction” (2003). He coauthored a three-volume comprehensive treatise on financial services regulation, entitled The Law of Financial Services (Aspen Law & Publishing, 1988), and has published numerous scholarly articles and monographs on a wide variety of economic, regulatory and legal subjects.

Pitt is currently a director and audit committee member of Premier Alliance Group, Inc., a public professional services company focused on business, energy and technology advisory and consulting services. He is also a director as well as the chairman of the Audit and Compensation Committees of GWU Medical Faculty Associates, Inc., an IRC §501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation that provides comprehensive medical care to residents of the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. He also serves on the Board of Directors and Audit Committee of the offshore funds of Paulson & Co., and its affiliates. In addition to his fiduciary board positions, Pitt is a member of the Global Advisory Forum of CQS, a global multi strategy asset management firm, and a member of the Regulatory and Compliance Advisory Council of Millennium Management LLC. Pitt is also a member of the Advisory Council of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, a not-for-profit corporation created by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, to oversee and regulate the audits of public companies and securities industry brokers and dealers. Pitt also serves as a senior advisor to Teneo Holdings LLC, a global consulting firm that offers a wide variety of strategic planning services to public and private companies, as well as local governments. Pitt previously served as a member of the National Cathedral School Board of Trustees (2006-09), where he was, variously, board vice-chair, co-chair of the Board’s Governance Committee and chair of the Audit and Compensation Committees. Pitt also previously served as a director of Approva Corporation (2004-07), a closely held company that provided compliance software for major public companies, and was a member of Approva’s Audit and Strategic Planning Committees. In 2011, Pitt was inducted into the National Association of Corporate Directors-Directorship 100 Hall of Fame, which acknowledges corporate governance professionals for their lifetime accomplishments and their positive influence on corporate governance. In 2011, Pitt received the “William O. Douglas Award”, conferred annually by the Association of Securities and Exchange Commission Alumni, Inc. on an SEC alumnus who has contributed to the development of the federal securities laws or served the financial and SEC community with distinction.
