Paulson hires ex-SEC officials

Hedge fund guru John Paulson has appointed a pair of former top dogs at the Securities and Exchange Commission to the board of Paulson & Co, just a few months after the firm was entangled in the commission’s fraud lawsuit against Goldman Sachs. Paulson, who is not accused of any wrongdoing in the case, named ex-SEC chairman Harvey Pitt and former commissioner Roel Campos as independent directors.
