“Making a Difference and Following Through” -A Glimpse At Dick Devos

Dick Devos is a man of many accomplishments as both an entrepreneur and a business man. He has achieved so much possibly in part due to the legacy that his father set for him and his brothers as the founder of a private and very profitable Amway Corporation. Growing up in a home full of business ventures and financial achievements it is no surprise that Mr. Devos not only went on to create his own company, The Windquest Group, but he also took his family’s business to new heights. He is credited with making Amway a truly global company with it’s hands in over 50 countries and 6 continents. Some of Mr. Devos’ other achievements include being president and CEO of The Orlando Magic basketball team as well as running for governor of Michigan in 2006. This man of Dutch descent, is married to Betsy Devos, originally Elisabeth Prince, the child of a business owner. Betsy’s father was an industrialist who owned the company Prince Corporation. The couple married in the 1980’s and have four children and one grandchild.

One of Dick Devos‘ most notable business prospects is undoubtedly his own corporation, The Windquest Group. The Windquest Group has been described as an investment management firm that participates in technological and manufacturing industries. One such environmentally prone project of the group was entitled “Green Machine.” Mr. Devos explained that from the very beginning his company was interested in investments that were “environmentally sound and economically sustainable.” The Green Machine in particular works to produce electricity out of waste energy.

Another notable business prospect for Mr. Devos would be his father’s corporation, Amway and it’s umbrella companies. Being the intelligent business person that he is, Mr. Devos not only advanced his father’s company to a global status as mentioned previously, but he also saw the potential to form additional companies from Amway. Alticor was created in 2000 as the parent company of Amway to prevent it from closing it’s doors. When Mr. Devos left Amway in 2002 the company made $4.5 million in sales.

Mr. Devos is currently the president of his company, The Windquest Group. He is worth an estimated $5.1 billion dollars and is ranked as one of America’s richest individuals.

Wall Street (SEC) Whistleblower Advocates

If you knew your boss was engaging in illegal activities, you would want protection from retribution to report the wrongdoing. So too, do those on Wall St.

What Qualifies as a Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) Whistleblower?

The Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act signed into law in 2010 by President Obama is the most far-reaching piece of financial legislation passed since the Great Depression. The drafters of this legislations realizing that actual change to financial practices must come from within wrote whistleblower incentives into the legislation and those incentives became law with the bill’s enactment. Since its inception, several awards have been made to whistleblowers, the largest in September 2014 was for $30 million and just as many have been denied. Therefore, it would be wise to “know before your whistle blow”. The following are instances that have been judged as violations or covered actions:

  • Fraudulent hedge funds
  • Money laundering
  • Securities fraud
  • “Security-based swap agreements”
  • Insider trading
  • Market manipulation
  • Retaliatory behavior

According to the Commissioner of the Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Program, Sean McKessy, “The Commission has paid more than $54 million to 22 whistleblowers since the Commission’s new whistleblower rules went into effect in August 2011.” Awards may be 10-30 percent of the sanctions enforced of more than $1 million. None of the award or incentive money ever comes from investors.
The purpose of the Whistleblower Program is to provide an atmosphere of transparency for investors and investment advisors. Although there has been some criticism of a program that provides rewards or incentives for whistleblowers, there have also been many compliments. The main goal of the program is to provide measures to protect investors and bring out into the open previous practices that robbed unwary investors and the American taxpayer.
Many believe that the longer the program is in effect and the more incentives are paid to informants for their tips, referrals, and complaints, the greater number of knowledgeable people will step forward and report improper deals, policies, and practices that do harm or have the potential to do harm to investors.

What to Do When You Suspect Wrongdoing or Misconduct

When you have information that you believe could be a violation the Consumer Protections Act, let a skilled evaluator investigate the merits of your information before divulging publicly any information you may hold. Whistleblowers are safeguarded against retaliation and lawyer/client confidentiality applies. You may remain anonymous and there is no requirement to name names during the initial consult. Case evaluations and initial consultations are free and without further obligation from the Labaton Sucharow SEC Whistleblower attorneys. To request an evaluation of your case contact us.
