Executive who aided in Tyco clean-up joins FINRA board

A former accounting executive who helped run Tyco International Ltd in the aftermath of an international accounting scandal will join the board of Wall Street's industry-funded watchdog, according to the regulator. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) said on Wednesday Carol Anthony Davidson, known as John Davidson, will serve on its board of governors beginning in January. Now retired, Davidson joined Tyco in 2004 as its controller and chief accounting officer. FINRA's board of governors has a big hand in everything from helping to determine industry fees to which proposed rules FINRA should submit to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
