SEC Names Head of Market Intelligence
January 22, 2013
Vincente L. Martinez has been named Chief of the Enforcement Division’s Office of Market Intelligence, which processes referred cases, tips and complaints.
Martinez was one of the first assistant directors in the SEC’s Office of Market Intelligence, created in 2010 as part of a major restructuring of the Enforcement Division.
He left the SEC in 2011 to become the first director of the whistleblower office at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). He will return next month to the SEC, which has its own whistleblower program.
“Our Office of Market Intelligence employs next-generation technology and data analysis to inform and drive our enforcement effort and priorities in the years to come,” said Robert Khuzami, who is departing as director of the SEC’s Enforcement Division. “Vince has the vision and dedication to lead that effort given his talent, commitment, and prior service to the SEC.”
Martinez worked for eight years in the SEC’s Enforcement Division, beginning in 2003 as a staff attorney and later becoming a senior counsel. He served on a task force devoted to pursuing accounting frauds.
