Please join me this Sunday evening for NQR’s Sense on Cents with Larry Doyle as we dig deeper and work harder in navigating the economic landscape. My special guest will be Genevievette Walker-Lightfoot.
Ms. Walker-Lightfoot was previously employed as an attorney in the Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C. for almost five years, where she worked on policy matters and conducted field examinations and inspections of transfer agents, brokerage firms, hedge funds, trading exchanges, ATSs, SROs, credit rating agencies, mutual fund companies and investment advisers.
Genevievette was the lead attorney on the 2003-2004 Madoff examination conducted by OCIE and identified the substantial elements of his fraud in 2004, as detailed in a July 2, 2009, Washington Post article. However, despite her attempts to pursue her findings, her supervisors directed her efforts elsewhere, missing an opportunity to have caught Madoff’s Ponzi scheme four years prior to him turning himself in to authorities.
Ms. Walker-Lightfoot received the SEC’s Chairman’s Award for Excellence for her work on the Mutual Fund Reform Team, as well as the SEC’s Capital Markets Award for her work on the Research Analyst/Investment Banking Conflicts of Interest Team. Prior to the SEC, Genevievette was employed with the American Stock Exchange’s Member Firm Regulation Division in New York and the Dispute Resolution Department of the NASDR, now known as FINRA, in Washington, D.C.
She is a graduate of Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. where she received a Bachelor of Arts in government, with a concentration in international relations and a minor in French. She also holds a J.D. and International Law Certificate from the Columbus School of Law at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. and an M.B.A. from the R.H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland at College Park, Maryland. She has been a member of the State Bar of Maryland for almost ten years.
Since January of 2006, Genevievette has been employed with the Federal Reserve Board in the Division of Banking Supervision and Regulation’s Large Institutions Group in Washington, D.C., where she has responsibility for the Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, the Depository Trust Corporation and ICE Trust. She was previously a member of the Market and Liquidity Risk Group where she was the SEC, brokerage firm and private equity and merchant banking activities risk specialist for banking organizations.
