The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has announced that Jane Norberg has been promoted to chief of the SEC’s Office of the Whistleblower.
Ms. Norberg joined the SEC in 2012 as the first deputy chief of the Office of the Whistleblower and helped establish the office, which intakes and reviews whistleblower tips received by the agency, evaluates whistleblower award claims, and makes recommendations on whether claimants have satisfied eligibility requirements to receive an award.
Ms. Norberg has served as acting chief since the departure of the office’s inaugural chief Sean McKessy.
Andrew J. Ceresney, Director of the SEC’s Enforcement Division, said:
In its short history, our whistleblower program has had a transformative impact on our agency, and Jane has played a significant role as deputy of the Office of the Whistleblower. I am proud of the program’s accomplishments, and I know that Jane will continue to ensure the program is a game changer for years to come.”
Ms. Norberg added:
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.”
