Bio

Dr. Weber teaches forensic accounting and fraud examination each semester at the Perdue School of Business. He focuses on accounting organizational behavior, mainly, on why people engage in financial misconduct. Weber is spearheading Salisbury's fraud examination experiential learning program, in which students assist in actual investigations and prosecutions of financial crime on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. As part of this program, Weber works with Maryland state's attorneys, and as a Virginia state prosecutor. He is a licensed attorney, forensic accountant, certified fraud examiner, and registered private investigator. In September 2022 and August 2023, the United States government awarded Weber a multi-million dollar grant to support the fraud examination experiential learning program.

Dr. Weber concluded his federal career as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's Chief Investigator. Prior to this, he served as Chief of Enforcement Unit I of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Prior to the FDIC, Weber was the Special Counsel for Enforcement for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Treasury Department bureau responsible for supervision of the nation's banking system, and all foreign banks federally licensed to conduct business in the United States.

On September 1, 2022, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia appointed Dr. Weber as the sole Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay member of the Council of the Virginia State Bar, the Board of Governors for the State Bar. The Bar Council enforces the rules and regulations that govern lawyer ethical behavior and the unauthorized practice of law; disciplines lawyers who violate the rules; regulates attorneys’ completion of mandatory continuing legal education; promotes access to legal services; and advances diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.

Dr. Weber believes that public service is crucial to public trust.
