John McCarthy, associate director at the Securities and Exchange Commission’s office of compliance inspections and examinations, will leave the agency later this month, according to the Commission. McCarthy is joining an unnamed privately-held proprietary-trading firm with offices in New York, London and Chicago.

During his tenure, McCarthy supervised and conducted inspections and examinations that involved a wide range of issues including best execution, order handling, research analyst conflicts, market-timing and late-trading, fixed-income trading, floor trading and ATS compliance.
