JP Morgan Chase Names FCPA Investigator

Compliance Week | December 26, 2012

JP Morgan Chase has named Howard Sklar, one of the more notable voices in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act community, its new head of anti-bribery investigations.

Sklar's official title is assistant director of business ethics & compliance investigations; he started with the bank in December. He will oversee a team that manages internal investigations relating to the FCPA, insider trading, and similar corporate misconduct.

Sklar previously was senior counsel at Recommind, a vendor of e-discovery software, and spoke frequently at compliance and FCPA events around the country; he was also one half of the two-man “This Week in FCPA” show, a series of videos he published online with fellow FCPA maven Tom Fox.

Earlier in his career Sklar was an FCPA strategist with Hewlett-Packard and vice president of compliance and ethics at American Express. He also worked for six years as an investigator at the Securities and Exchange Commission and as an assistant district attorney in the Bronx.
