Lynn Brewer, known as Eddie Lynn Morgan before her marriage, is the author of the book "Confessions of an Enron Executive: A Whistleblower's Story". She is also the founder of the Integrity Institute which provides analytical research and education in the area of "structural integrity," and she speaks at conferences or similar events for honorarium of $13,500 or more.
In 1998 she was hired as a senior specialist at Enron. Her job at Enron was to head up a team that examined natural gas and power contracts, writing brief summaries for managers. Brewer has been a regular speaker at universities where she lectures students on the importance of ethics in business. She provided the keynote address at the Sarbanes-Oxley conference hosted by the New York Stock Exchange in 2003. Brewer co-authored an article in Business Strategy Review with noted management expert Oren Harari on leadership.
A USA today article by Greg Farrell based on interviews with two dozen former colleagues, found that her claim to be a former Enron Executive and as the first whistleblower at Enron can't be substantiated. Her former colleagues described her claim as exaggerated.
In her defense Lynn Brewer claimed that she headed up a contract briefing team, she controlled more than $1 million in salaries and overall budget, therefore, she considered herself an executive.
Former Enron employees claim that she mainly did clerical work at Enron, and lost her job after failing to complete an assignment to teach a workshop in London. According to USA Today she takes advantage of her similarity to a real whistle-blower at Enron, Sherron Watkins. Brewer said that "...we'd hope that all the time we're confused with her (Sherron Watkins)". Brewer says that she was out speaking publicly about Enron well before Watkins was ever on the cover of Time magazine.
Lynn Brewer said she will ask USA Today for an apology for its recent article questioning her credentials as an Enron whistle-blower. If the newspaper doesn't back down she will take her complaint to the Washington News Council, an organization that handles media disputes.Brewer, Lynn, Robert Chandler, and O.C.
