"I am very excited to join IPSA at such an important point in their global growth in the anti-corruption compliance and corporate investigations area. With the strong focus on the FCPA by U.S. authorities and the increasing attention by other countries on bribery prosecutions, robust anti-corruption compliance is critical for today's companies.
