Comcast Corp., Philadelphia, has hired Daniel C. Murdock away from his job as Deputy Chief Accountant at the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company says. Murdock will be Comcast's Vice President, Corporate Controller "and oversees accounting policies and procedures, reporting controls," and compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley federal accounting law, Comcast said in a statement.

Murdock is no stranger to Comcast-style accounting: Before joining the SEC in 2013, Murdock headed the Media & Entertainment practice at the Big Four accounting firm Deloitte & Touch LLP.

Murdock's new boss is Comcast executive vice president/chief accounting officer Lawrence Salva.
