In addition to internal and external consulting roles, I have worked in banking and investment companies in senior financial positions, and have an excellent understanding of anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist financing, and anti-sanctions risks relating to financial and non-financial industries.  I have mastered the understanding of fraud risks in an international business environment, and I am practiced in assessing risks

in systems, processes, and controls.


I have led companies in assessing their fraud risk control environments, and along with my persuasive soft skills, have been successful at devising and selling fraud risk remediation plans to boards and compliance oversight committees in order to enhance existing control systems. I have participated in successful undercover operations and take-downs.
