About the Speaker
Mr. Fastow was the Chief Financial Officer of Enron Corp. from 1998 through 2001, when the company filed for bankruptcy. That bankruptcy destroyed $40 billion of shareholder wealth and retirement savings, caused thousands of people to lose their jobs, and impacted an enormous number of businesses in Houston and elsewhere. In 2004, Mr. Fastow pled guilty to two counts of securities fraud and was sentenced to six years in federal prison. In addition to serving his prison term, Mr. Fastow forfeited more money than he ever earned at Enron…but he is credited as the individual most responsible for helping to recover $6 billion for Enron shareholders.
