About the Expert

With 40+ years of experience in the field of bank operations and financial fraud management, I was responsible for the development of a Liability Risk Management infrastructure for a major national bank and, working with peers from other large financial institutions and trade associations, helped pioneer a number of industry solutions, technologies and standards. As a consultant, I continued in these roles, to help other financial institutions of all sizes across the country analyze and improve their fraud controls. I developed and performed educational programs in fraud management for individual financial institutions as well as for industry trade associations, and worked with fraud prevention solution providers to improve fraud prevention products. For the past 10+ years, my practice has included performing litigation consultation and expert witness testimony for both plaintiffs and defendants, banks and consumers.
