Kroll, a global provider of services and digital products related to valuation, governance, risk and transparency, has named David Lewis, a former executive secretary of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), as a managing director (MD) in its forensic investigations and intelligence practice.
Earlier in his career, Lewis worked for the UK government as a senior policy adviser at Her Majesty’s Treasury, where he was head of anti-money laundering policy and the illicit finance unit. He has also served as a senior member of the Serious Organised Crime Agency (now the UK National Crime Agency), where he established and led a department that built relationships across the private sector in support of non-traditional interventions targeting serious organised criminal activity.
The combination of Kroll’s global investigation, intelligence, technology-driven analytics and risk advisory services with Lewis’ experience and expertise, the company states, will provide governments and financial institutions with the practical applications and insight needed to successfully tackle money laundering and terrorist financing.
“Lewis has been instrumental in driving the global fight against money laundering and has consistently promoted an intelligence-led approach, leveraging technology to enable multi-jurisdictional stakeholders to effectively detect and investigate financial crime,” says Tom Everett-Heath, global head of Kroll’s forensic investigations and intelligence practice. “His stance perfectly complements Kroll’s professional expertise and experience in advising clients in this field.”
