VCF Leadership Team announcement - Deputy Special Master Deborah Greenspan departs VCF

November 7, 2016

Effective November 3, 2016, Deborah Greenspan concluded her service as Deputy Special Master. Debby was instrumental to the success of the VCF from the time the initial program was enacted in 2001, through the reopening in 2011 and the recent reauthorization in 2015. Over the years, Debby brought her tremendous expertise and commitment to the victims of 9/11 to ensure a claims process that is transparent, equitable, and carefully considers the individual circumstances of each and every claim.

Special Master Rupa Bhattacharyya and the entire VCF team express deep gratitude to Debby for her leadership of the program over the past several years, which we know is echoed by those in the 9/11 community. Click here to read Debby’s message to the 9/11 community.
