The trade group for state securities regulators has named Colorado Securities Commissioner Philip A. Feigin as executive director.

Mr. Feigin, 49, who takes the reins Oct. 13, will manage the Washington office of the North American Securities Administrators Association. His other duties will include meeting with legislators on investor protection and regulatory issues.

As Colorado's securities commissioner, Mr. Feigin has pushed for several laws, including investment adviser legislation, implemented this year. His new position would allow him to become more active nationally.

Mr. Feigin succeeds Neal E. Sullivan, who resigned in August to become a partner in the Washington office of Bingham Dana LLP, a Boston-based law firm. No successor has been named for Mr. Feigin.
