Vincent McGonagle is a senior director for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's division of enforcement (DOE). He was previously director of the CFTC's division of market oversight. He was appointed on September 16, 2013 and assumed his new role on October 7, 2013.
McGonagle joined the CFTC's enforcement division in 1997 and recently served as the senior deputy director. Before that he served at the CFTC in various management capacities in the Division of Enforcement, including serving as principal deputy and acting director.
One notable accomplishment was in 2008, when McGonagle opened an investigation into the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) that led to settlements with UBS, Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc. The three banks paid a total of about $2.5 billion in fines for colluding to rig benchmark interest rates for profit or to hide their original cost of borrowing.
McGonagle earned a B.A. in Economics from LaSalle University and a J.D. from Pepperdine University School of Law.
