One thing has to be admitted about Mark Swartz, the former Chief Financial Officer of Tyco International, he is a true professional. A financial officer should focus and concentrate on his company’s finances, and Mark Swartz being Chief Financial Officer, focused more on Tyco’s money than anyone else. Now serving sentence for grand larceny and securities fraud over looting the coffers of Tyco International, Mark Swartz still can’t get his mind off what he thinks is lawfully his. In a lawsuit made public on Monday, he has accused Tyco of breach of contract and unjust enrichment for not paying his $48 million from an executive retirement agreement and $9 million in reimbursement for New York taxes and other money. Cumulative claims were rounded to a gross amount of $ 60 million only.

The lawsuit filed in the New York state Supreme Court claims that the company, at the time it signed the agreement with Mark Swartz, was fully aware that the Manhattan District Attorney intended to bring criminal charges against him. The lawsuit claims “The directors and management of Tyco approved the subject agreement with actual knowledge that he was shortly to be indicted.”

In a similar case between Kozlowski and Tyco (Chief Executive Dennis Kozlowski went to jail in the same case with Mark), a federal judge has ruled earlier that Kozlowski was not eligible to collect the millions he claims the company owed to him as benefits.

  
What
Where


Swartz was the chief financial officer of Tyco International from 1995 to 2002. He was sentenced in 2005, and besides the prison sentence he has already paid $72 million in court-ordered restitution and fines.

Swartz is presently assigned to the Lincoln Correctional Facility where Kozlowski is also doing his term. Swartz is on a furlough schedule and is scheduled to appear before the Parole Board in September 2013. He is allowed to leave on Wednesdays and return on Mondays.

However Kozlowski, whose $6000 shower curtain purchased by Tyco’s money made him a symbol of corporate greed, was not allowed parole. Tyco is a Swiss company that specializes in security systems and diversified service units.
