The head of the whistleblower program at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) departed the agency Friday.

Christopher Ehrman had led the agency’s Whistleblower Office as director since 2013. He will be replaced by Christina McGlosson, the program’s associate director, on an interim basis.

“I am grateful to Chris for his dedication to public service here at the CFTC,” said Chairman Rostin Behnam in a press release. “The Whistleblower Office, the Division of Enforcement, and market participants have all benefited tremendously from his leadership, insight, and many contributions to the work of our agency.”

The CFTC in October 2021 awarded nearly $200 million to a whistleblower in what was believed to be the largest payout for an individual in U.S. history at the time. The bounty was surpassed in May when the Securities and Exchange Commission announced a $279 million award.

The CFTC in June announced its whistleblower program was seeking individuals to come forward regarding the reporting of potential violations of the Commodity Exchange Act connected to fraud or manipulation in carbon markets.
