About the Expert

With 40+ years of experience in the field of bank operations and financial fraud management, 20+ years have been as a banker. During that time I was an Operations Manager in a number of retail branches, and then a Project (and often Business) Manager including projects on branch productivity, call center creation and management, international compliance, merger and acquisition integration, sub-escrow management, new business development and, finally, the creation of fraud detection and prevention management functions for a major national bank. In the following 20+ years, I continued in the area of financial fraud management, as a consultant, educator and vendor of bank fraud prevention solutions to the financial services industry. For the past 10+ years, my practice has included performing litigation consultation and expert witness testimony for both plaintiffs and defendants, banks and consumers.
