Members of the Board of Regents discuss the ACFE's effect on the profession, looming frauds, global topics, spreading the word, anti-fraud research, and catching the bad guys.
The seven have at least three things in common: they're CFEs, they're members of the ACFE Board of Regents, and they love to catch bad guys. Beyond that, their diverse backgrounds and jobs reflect the makeup of much of the ACFE.
Fraud Magazine interviewed these seven during the 19th Annual ACFE Fraud Conference & Exhibition in Boston. The discussion was wide-ranging and animated as they pondered subjects that interest most fraud examiners.

Farragher, CFE, CPA, an executive director in Ernst & Young's global Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services practice; ACFE CEO and CFO Scott Grossfeld, CFE, CPA (advisory member); Bert F. Lacativo, CFE, CPA, a partner in PricewaterhouseCoopers' Investigative Services practice; Delena D.
