CFTC Whistle-Blower Chief Rejoins SEC Enforcement Unit

(Corrects spelling of Martinez’s first name in first paragraph.)

Jan. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Vincente Martinez, who helped start the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission market intelligence office before stepping down in 2011, is returning to lead the unit responsible for evaluating tips, complaints and referrals.

Martinez will rejoin the SEC next month from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, where he was the first director of the agency’s whistle-blower office. In his prior stint at the SEC, he worked for eight years in the enforcement division and became an assistant director of the market intelligence office when it was created as part of a restructuring of the unit.

“Our Office of Market Intelligence employs next-generation technology and data analysis to inform and drive our enforcement effort and priorities in the years to come,” SEC enforcement director Robert Khuzami said in a statement. “Vince has the vision and dedication to lead that effort given his talent, commitment, and prior service to the SEC.”
