When Tom Sporkin joined the CFP Board as managing director of enforcement in January 2021, he was met with his fair share of challenges. Sporkin and his team are constantly trying to improve and implement the significant resources dedicated to their detection efforts, but at the end of the day, “we’re aware that we can’t find everything,” he says. “The thing that keeps me up at night is whether we’re doing absolutely everything within reason to grab relevant data and persuade people to report observations to us, because everything we do starts with detection.” Sporkin spoke to us about the lessons he’s learned, the toughest challenges he’s had to face, and why he can’t force himself to watch Showtime’s Billions.
