NAPW honors Michelle Brown as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. Ms. Brown is recognized with the prestigious distinction for leadership in business.

“Fraud is not a one-size-fits-all event. Fraud types, methods, audiences and targets are extremely diverse. Applying the same fraud discovery, prevention or investigation technique to each case would be a mistake,” says Ms. Brown, President and CEO of Christopher Charles Group (CCG), a Virginia-based firm specializing in fraud management both internationally and domestically.
Ms. Brown has amassed several years of experience developing fraud programs for Fortune 500 and government customers around the globe. “As a small, woman-owned, minority enterprise, I see significant opportunity to address the growing fraud management challenges that businesses and governments are facing in their organizations. A rise in the number of firms dedicated to this cause is encouraging, given the heightened demand for effective fraud prevention," she says. "Key to the successful fraud prevention business owner will be the ability to focus as the fraudster has focused. The combined and extensive talent at Christopher Charles Group provides that prowess. Our solutions are custom made for the types of fraud our customers experience.”
Ms. Brown has directed fraud management and prevention operations providing strategy, solution development and training from startup to program maturity. “I understand the relationship between people processes and technology as they relate to fraudulent activity,” says Ms. Brown, who has been responsible for protecting countless corporations and individuals from deceptive business practices.
A Regent Emeritus on the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners Board of Regents, Ms. Brown also provides mentoring and coaching through her faith-based organization, My Sisters Keepers.
