Who is Shana Madoff?

Shana Madoff, sometimes referred to as Shana Madoff Skoller Swanson, is an American attorney. She is a daughter of Peter Madoff, and a niece of Bernard Madoff, who operated a multi-billion-dollar Ponzi scheme that is considered to be the largest financial fraud in U.S. history.

She was a compliance officer and attorney at her uncle's firm, Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities, from 1995 until 2008. In December 2008 it was discovered to be a Ponzi scheme, and closed as part of the Madoff investment scandal. She also served on compliance Executive Committees of the Securities Industry Association and the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, and served on the compliance advisory committee of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, a securities industry "self-regulatory organization". Her uncle Bernard was sentenced to 150 years in jail for the scheme, and her father, who was her boss at the company and the chief compliance officer, was sentenced to 10 years in jail.

She is married to Eric Swanson, a former Assistant Director of the Office of Compliance Investigations and Examinations at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. She first met her husband when he was conducting an SEC examination of whether Bernie Madoff was running a Ponzi scheme.
