Arevalo has been chief of the OIA's international cooperation and technical assistance programs since 2012. He was responsible for expanding the training programs for foreign regulators, including training in anti-money laundering compliance.

In his role as associate director, Arevalo is expected to oversee international enforcement, supervisory cooperation, and technical assistance programs.

Before joining the SEC in 2004, Arevalo spent 14 years as an assistant US attorney in the Southern District of California.
