Norm Champ, Investment Funds Partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP and Former SEC Director of the Division of Investment Management, Announces McGraw-Hill Education to Publish Going Public: My Adventures Inside the SEC and How to Prevent the Next Devastating Crisis

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - Norm Champ, a partner in the Investment Funds Group of Kirkland & Ellis LLP and former Director of the Division of Investment Management at the SEC, today announced that McGraw-Hill Education will publish his book Going Public: My Adventures Inside the SEC and How to Prevent the Next Devastating Crisis. McGraw-Hill Education is a leading publisher of business, education and consumer titles. The book, expected to be published in January 2017, chronicles Champ's personal experience at the SEC in the midst of the recent financial crisis.

When Champ joined the SEC in 2009, the agency was under immense pressure to reign in Wall Street. There was little doubt the SEC had to fix rules that permitted bad behavior and start to enforce existing laws. Champ was eager to be a part of this positive change. He soon realized, however, not everyone shared his enthusiasm for ushering in reform. Going Public offers a behind-the-scenes look at the SEC's arcane culture and Champ's efforts to lead reforms to stabilize an American financial system that was on the brink of disaster.

"I'm thrilled that McGraw-Hill Education, which has an esteemed legacy in the publishing industry, will publish this book," Champ said. "I want to use my experience at the SEC to provide a vision of change. With common sense regulation, we can strengthen the American financial system and make certain that it will continue to be the world's most vibrant market."
