Auburn University hosts Whistleblower Tour

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, Ala. -

Auburn University is bringing a whistleblower for an investigation of one of the world's largest banks to campus.

Former Deutsche Bank executive Eric Ben-Artzi, whose revelations touched off a major fraud investigation of the bank will speak at Auburn University on Monday, May 27, as part of a program on whistleblowers in government and business.

Ben-Artzi, the quantitative risk analyst who reported possible securities violations at Deutsche Bank in 2011 leading to a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation, will speak at 7 p.m. in Lowder Hall Room 113-A.

His visit is sponsored by the Government Accountability Project's Whistleblower Tour and the Raymond J. Harbert College of Business. There is no charge for the public event.

The tour is a campaign to educate the public, particularly university students, about the practice of whistleblowing. This event will feature a moderated discussion. A full description of the Tour can be found at www.WhistleblowerTour.org.

"We are excited to bring our Whistleblower Tour to Auburn University for the third year in a row," said Dana Gold, Whistleblower Tour director and event moderator. "The student and faculty feedback continues to amaze us, showing that the Auburn community truly recognizes the importance of society's truth-tellers and the ethical responsibilities of its future graduates."
