Mr. Martinez was Chief of the Office of Market Intelligence (OMI) in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement from 2013-2016. OMI’s mission is to collect, evaluate and disseminate tips, complaints and referrals submitted to the SEC by the public, other government agencies and self-regulatory organizations. Mr. Martinez was one of the first assistant directors appointed to OMI after it was created as part of the restructuring of the Division of Enforcement, where he had previously served for seven years.

Immediately prior to becoming the chief of OMI, Mr. Martinez served as the first director of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Whistleblower Office, where he established the CFTC’s whistleblower program, which was created by the Dodd-Frank Act to provide monetary awards and anti-retaliation protections for persons providing information concerning violations of the Commodity Exchange Act. In that role, Mr. Martinez interacted with whistleblowers and their representatives, developed the CFTC’s policies and procedures for handling whistleblower matters, and worked to raise awareness of the program among industry and market participants, fellow law enforcement and regulatory agencies, and members of the private bar. Prior to joining the SEC, Mr. Martinez spent several years in private practice as a litigator and a corporate transactional attorney.

Mr. Martinez is a graduate of Georgetown University and the University of California, Berkeley School of Law.
