The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that Jane Norberg will now head its whistleblower office. The SEC Office of the Whistleblower reviews whistleblower tips, evaluates whistleblower award claims, and makes recommendations on whether claimants should receive an award for their information. Ms. Norberg has served as acting chief since the departure of Sean McKessy in July.
Ms. Norberg said, “It has been an honor serving in the roles of deputy and acting chief and working with staff extremely dedicated to the mission. I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to continue the work of the office and remain committed to making whistleblowers feel welcome and protected in reporting to the Commission.”
Ms. Norberg joined the SEC in 2012 as the deputy chief of the Office of the Whistleblower and helped established the office. She was previously in private law practice and served as a special agent for the U.S. Secret Service, where her duties included providing protection to the President, Vice President and visiting foreign dignitaries as well as conducting criminal investigations into federal crimes.
