Since the June departure of Cheryl Scarboro from the SEC (see here for the prior post), the SEC’s FCPA Unit has been without a Chief. No longer, as yesterday the SEC announced (here) that Kara Brockmeyer has been named the new Chief of the FCPA Unit. According to the release, the bulk of Brockmeyer’s FCPA experience has been in the Bonny Island Bribery cases – see here for previous posts.
Robert Khuzami, Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement stated as follows. “Enforcement of the FCPA remains a high priority for the Division, and adding Kara’s talent to the exceptional ability and dedication of the members of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Unit will further enhance our anti-corruption program.”
