Principal, PwC US
As a Forensics Principal specializing in strategic threat and anti-corruption, George advises clients in both the public and private sector on leading practices in managing governance, risk, and compliance to identify and mitigate threats – financial, operations, human capital, legal/compliance, information technology – that adversely impact or disrupt the organization’s ability to achieve their strategic objectives. With over 20 years of experience advising private sector companies, George has directed multiple engagements to benchmark corporate governance, compliance and information technology programs targeted at mitigating the risks of economic crime.
He has also performed numerous financial crime investigations related to fraud, bribery, corruption, terrorist financing, and intellectual property theft. To that end, George partnered with the Center for Responsible Enterprise and Trade (CREATe) and co-authored a paper entitled the Economic Impact of Trade Secret Theft -- an analysis of the magnitude of the trade secret theft, the troublemakers and trends coupled with practical guidance as to what companies can do to protect prized intellectual property assets. George is on the Advisory Board of the Association of Certified Financial Crime Specialists and he holds a BA from the University of Pittsburgh and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
