While at the SEC, Dick stepped up the Commission’s attack against earnings management and other financial reporting abuses with cases including W.R.

He also spearheaded efforts to fight microcap fraud and teamed up with the FBI and the Department of Justice to halt infiltration of organized crime into our markets.
