    10.13.17 Gail Ennis ’98 Nominated by the President as Inspector General for Social Security Administration
    Whitehouse

    Gail Ennis ’98 has been nominated by President Donald Trump to become the next Inspector General for the Social Security Administration. She will succeed Gale Stallworth Stone, the Acting Inspector General since May 2016.

    Since graduating magna cum laude from the Law School, Ennis has worked at Wilmer, Cutler, Pickering, Hale and Dorr, where she became a partner in 2007. Her practice focuses on securities litigation and enforcement and financial institutions, providing advice to major banks, financial institutions, and individuals in a broad range of litigation and enforcement matters. She has represented clients before Congress and a broad array of regulatory bodies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Department of Justice, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.

    The Office of the Inspector General for Social Security Administration was established through the Inspector General Act of 1978, which passed in the wake of the Watergate scandal to increase transparency and accountability in the Executive Branch. Its mission is to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in the administration of Social Security Administration programs and operations, and prevent and detect fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement in such programs and operations.
