Bloomfield Hills, MI (PRWEB) December 20, 2013
Cendrowski Corporate Advisors (http://www.cca-advisors.com), a financial consulting and litigation support firm, is pleased to announce that former FBI agent Ron Reddy has joined CCA’s Investigative Services division.
During an FBI career that spanned almost 30 years, Mr. Reddy served as an Assistant Section Chief in the FBI’s counter-terrorism division and as a Deputy On-Scene Commander for FBI Operations in Iraq. He was also a member of the FBI’s SWAT program for more than two decades.
“Ron’s investigative experience includes working as an undercover agent on investigations requiring the use of advanced intelligence-gathering techniques,” notes Managing Director Harry Cendrowski. “His experience in uncovering criminal activity and supervising violent crime squads gives CCA and its clients access to a powerful network that extends across Europe and Asia.”
Mr. Reddy’s investigative experience spans the globe, with emphasis in Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, the Republic of Georgia, Ireland, Kazakhstan, Kenya, and the Ukraine.
International investigations are becoming increasingly important to corporate general counsel for public and private companies. Heightened efforts by the Department of Justice to enforce the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), as well as recent international regulations like the UK’s Bribery Act of 2010, require that in-house legal departments protect against bribery and corruption in corporate efforts to attract or retain business outside of the U.S.
The addition of Mr. Reddy broadens CCA’s Investigative Services practice group, which now includes international investigations, white collar criminal investigations, international and domestic security services, background screening, and computer forensics.
After retiring from the FBI in September of 2011, Mr. Reddy served as the first Deputy Director for the Detroit Crime Commission for two years. He was instrumental in the formation of the non-profit Detroit Crime Commission and still sits on its Board of Commissioners.
Mr. Reddy holds a Bachelor of Electronic Engineering from the Ohio Institute of Technology and a Master of Public Administration degree from Governors State University. He is a member of the Society of Former FBI Agents and the Southeast Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police. Mr. Reddy is a military veteran, with service in the U.S. Navy.
Other CCA team members in the Investigative Services practice group include former FBI special agents Theresa Mack and Shahna M. Richman. Ms. Mack spent 22 years as an FBI Special Agent investigating white collar crime. At CCA she oversees fraud investigations, forensic accounting engagements, and background investigations. Ms. Richman spent 11 years with the FBI, primarily in the FBI's Violent Crimes/Major Offenders (VCMO) program. She has been trained in Protective Services/Executive Protection by the U.S. Secret Service and U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Diplomatic Security, and is a Nationally Registered Paramedic as well as an Advanced Forensic Specialist.
