A former top finance official at Roswell Park Cancer Institute has settled allegations that he violated the state’s revolving door restrictions, according to the Joint Commission on Public Ethics.

John Sieber, Roswell Park’s assistant vice president for finance from 2006 to early 2011, paid $2,500 under a settlement with the Commission, which alleged he repeatedly violated the state’s two-year ban on appearing or practicing before his former agency, the Commission said in a release.

Roswell Park reached out to Sieber to train a new vice president of finance, coordinate a search of a national consulting firm and work on the institute’s budget, according to the release.

Roswell, formerly part of the state Health Department, is a public benefit corporation under state law and has revised its ethics training program and personnel policies, the Commission said.
