Mark E. Bannon - Executive Director

Mark Bannon was selected as the third Executive Director for the Palm Beach County Commission on Ethics (COE) in December 2015, having been a member of COE staff since 2010.  Prior to his selection, he had served the COE as an Investigator, Senior Investigator, Interim Staff Counsel and Interim Executive Director. 

A U.S Army veteran, Mr. Bannon spent nearly 25 years serving as a deputy sheriff, supervisor and Commander with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office where he worked in patrol, investigative and community support assignments before retiring from policing in 2005.

He is a graduate of Florida Atlantic University, and holds a Master of Public Administration degree from Nova Southeastern University. Mr. Bannon attended law school at the University of Miami, and was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2005.  He is also a former Assistant State Attorney who prosecuted criminal cases in the 15th Judicial Circuit.

Mr. Bannon authored a book on criminal procedure for law enforcement officers, which was published in 2003 and he has taught criminal justice courses to graduate and undergraduate students at both Palm Beach State College and South University.  He brings a very unique blend of law enforcement and legal education and experience to the Commission, and to the role of Executive Director.
