New Enforcement Watchdog At The SEC
Coming on the heels of the announcement that SEC Director of Enforcement Robert Khuzami would be stepping down, the SEC appointed Vincente Martinez to run the SEC’s office of Market Intelligence, a subdivision of the Enforcement Division that harvests whistleblower tips, opens investigations and assigns cases to enforcement lawyers. Martinez served as an enforcement lawyer for eight years and was previously the assistant director of the division. Martinez also has whistleblower credentials, having come from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission where he served as the first director of that agency’s whistleblower office.
