Harvey Pitt to Deliver Opening Day Keynote at the Marcum MicroCap Conference

New York City, NY – Harvey Pitt, former chairman of the Securities & Exchange Commission and presently CEO of Kalorama Partners, LLC, will deliver the opening day keynote address at  the 2016 Marcum MicroCap Conference. Mr. Pitt’s topic on June 1 will be Navigating the Challenges of the Microcap Public Markets: Washington Initiatives, Risk Management and Opportunities for Management Teams and Investors. The conference will take place at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City.

Prior to founding Kalorama in 2003, Mr. Pitt served as the twenty-sixth chairman of the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission. In that role, from 2001 until 2003, he was responsible 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, Mr. Pitt was a senior corporate partner of Fried, Frank LLP, an international law firm. He 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.

In addition to Mr. Pitt, the 2016 Marcum MicroCap Conference will also feature a keynote address by Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and current best-selling author.  Mr. Gingrich will speak on June 2.
