Under his watch, the division tackled the issue of transparency in dark pools, including reporting and the use of indications of interest; sponsored access; and the fallout from the '"flash crash" of May 2010.

Earlier, Brigagliano led the drafting and implementation of Regulation SHO, which updated the SEC's oversight of short sales. More recently the attorney worked on new rules covering derivatives mandated by Dodd-Frank.

Brigagliano won the division's Jay Manning award in 2003, given to staffers for excellence in service.
