The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that Charles E. Cain has been named chief of the Enforcement Division’s national specialized Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Unit that focuses on violations of the anti-bribery provisions of the federal securities laws.
Since April 2017, Mr. Cain has served as Acting Chief of the FCPA Unit leading all aspects of the Enforcement Division’s national enforcement of the FCPA. Prior to being appointed Acting Chief of the FCPA Unit, Mr. Cain served as the Deputy Chief of the Unit since 2011. In 2013, Mr. Cain received the Irving R. Pollack Award recognizing his scholarship and professional expertise in co-authoring the Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act setting forth a detailed analysis of the FCPA and providing insight into SEC and U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) enforcement practices.
“Charles’s deep experience in FCPA matters is reflected in his outstanding efforts and results over the years as part of the Commission’s efforts to combat foreign bribery,” said Stephanie Avakian, Co-Director of the SEC’s Enforcement Division.
