Deloitte names new Anti-money Laundering and Economic Sanctions leaders
New York, May 16, 2016 — Frederick E. Curry III has been named Deloitte Advisory Anti-money Laundering (AML) and Economic Sanctions practice leader and Michael Shepard has been named Deloitte Global AML, Economic Sanctions and Financial Crimes leader. They succeed Alison Clew who will retire in May. Curry, Shepard, and Clew are principals in Deloitte Transactions and Business Analytics LLP.
“With hundreds of professionals in the US and approaching 2,000 globally, Deloitte’s growing anti-money laundering and economic sanctions consulting practices offer a full range of services to financial services companies, card and alternative payment companies, casino and gaming companies, retailers and federal agency clients,” said Kevin McGovern, Deloitte Advisory partner and Regulatory & Compliance practice leader, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “Alison has led our team and served our clients incredibly well for years, and she’ll be missed. Fred and Michael are senior leaders who bring deep AML and sanctions experience, so I am confident they will take our practices to new levels of innovation and excellence.”
Don Fancher, Deloitte Global Forensics leader, added, "Increased regulatory enforcement of financial crime has made it one of the stay-awake issues for C-suite executives of major organizations regardless of industry, and anti-money laundering is a chief concern. We recognize the growing issues that financial institutions and corporations face as they confront the risks of money laundering, economic sanctions, and financial crime. Both Fred and Michael are senior AML professionals who help clients meet these ongoing challenges."
