Jennifer Shasky Calvery announced this week that she will be leaving her position as director of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) at the end of May. Calvery has served as FinCEN’s director since September 2012.
Her entire career has been spent in service to the public, including 15 years at the Department of Justice, where much of her work was focused on combating financial crime. Under Calvery’s direction, FinCEN has enhanced its reputation within the U.S. government, throughout the U.S. financial sector, and with international financial partners as a key resource in the fight against terrorist finance, money laundering, and transnational organized crime.
Her work to efficiently organize FinCEN into sharply focused and dedicated divisions has led to innovative uses of existing authorities to combat financial crime, improved application of technology to derive intelligence from FinCEN’s data, and targeted regulatory initiatives to address priority threats to the U.S. financial system.
