SEC whistleblower chief Sean McKessy to depart agency | Compliance Week

The SEC announced today that after more than five years as the first-ever Chief of the SEC’s Office of the Whistleblower, Sean McKessy plans to leave the agency this month. McKessy joined the SEC to head up its new whistleblower program in February 2011, and has helped get the program on strong footing. Since its inception, the Office of the Whistleblower has now awarded more than $85 million to 32 whistleblowers, including five awards totalling more than $26 million in the last two months.
