Laura Unger, a Securities and Exchange Commission member who was acting chairwoman for six months earlier this year, said Tuesday she plans to leave the agency for the private sector.

Republican Chairman Harvey Pitt, who took charge as chairman on Aug. 3, and Democrat Isaac Hunt are the other current commission members.

Harvey Pitt, the new top cop of America's securities markets, apparently couldn't wait to start his new job. Pitt, who was confirmed by the Senate on Aug. 1, was "informally" sworn in as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday, an SEC spokesman said. The date for a more formal ceremony has not been set, spokesman John Heine said. The informal swearing-in was engineered so Pitt could start work at the agency as soon as possible, Heine said.
