Statement From Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson

(INDIANAPOLIS) October 4, 2013 — “Chris Naylor has served this office with distinction in his six years as Indiana’s Securities Commissioner,” said Secretary Lawson. “He leaves this post with a legacy of increasing penalties for investment fraud, recovering tens of millions of dollars in investor losses and establishing a restitution fund to repay Hoosier victims of investment fraud. Chris is recognized by state and federal prosecutors and regulators for his diligence and professionalism. He's not only brought scam artists to justice, he’s worked hard to educate Hoosiers on how to protect themselves and their loved ones from fraud by being a champion of financial literacy education. He has been a tremendous asset to this office and will be missed.

“I wish Chris the best of luck on his new endeavor as Assistant Executive Director of the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys' Council. Our loss is most certainly their gain.”
