Back in 2013 I wrote here about a historic Directors Panel that occurred at Securities Enforcement Forum 2013. Five current or former SEC Directors of Enforcement convened for a fascinating panel discussion at that event to discuss current SEC enforcement issues and developments over the past four decades.
At yesterday's Securities Enforcement Forum 2015, another Directors Panel was held that included seven(!) current or former SEC Directors of Enforcement--including Hon. Irving Pollack, the very first Enforcement Director (1972-73), and Andrew Ceresney, the current Director. A photo of the seven Directors is below:

The seven Directors represent all but four of the 11 Directors in the history of the Division of Enforcement. The four Directors not present were John Fedders (1981-1984), Gary Lynch (1985-1989), Richard Walker (1998-2001) and Steve Cutler (2001–2005).
