Tom Hardin previously spent much of his career as a financial analyst on Wall St. in New York
City. ln 2008, as part of a cooperation agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice, Tom
assisted the U.S. government in understanding how insider trading occurred in the financial
services industry. Known as "Tipper X," Tom became one of the most prolific FBI informants in
securities fraud history, helping to build over 20 of the 80+ individual criminal cases in "Operation
Perfect Hedge," a Wall Street house cleaning campaign that morphed into the largest insider
trading investigation of a generation. As the youngest professional implicated in the sting, Tom
was tasked with wearing a covert body wire on over 40 occasions to help the FBI bring down
some of its biggest targets in the industry.
ln a serendipity of sorts, Tom was invited by the FBI-NYC's office to speak to their rookie agents
in 2016 about his experience, including his mistakes in judgement and the psychological
underpinnings of his decision-making. Tom's experience has transformed his life and he is now
a global keynote speaker, corporate trainer and board advisor on behavioral ethics, compliance,
organizational conduct, and culture risk.
Tom holds a B.S. in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
Tom's riveting life story is the subject of his forthcoming book, Wired for Justice: A Tale of
Financial Crime, Person al Transformation, and Redemption
