New York County District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., announced the appointment of Polly Greenberg ’90 as chief of the Major Economic Crimes Bureau.
She first joined the office in 1993, starting in the Appeals Bureau and later in the Investigations Division. After leaving the office in late 2000 for private practice, Greenberg returned in 2005, and prosecuted primarily organized crime cases.
She was appointed deputy bureau chief of the Major Economic Crimes Bureau shortly after its creation two years ago, and has been instrumental in setting bureau priorities and in collaborating with outside agencies to broaden the reach of the bureau and develop a wide variety of investigations. She has supervised investigations into and prosecutions of securities, bank and mortgage fraud, and international and domestic money laundering, as well as wiretap investigations.
She graduated from Wesleyan with high honors in American studies and received her law degree from New York University School of Law.
