Leading International Investigations and Compliance Expert John Auerbach Joins BRG
BRG announced today that John Auerbach has joined its Global Investigations + Strategic Intelligence practice as a managing director based in New York.
“I am very excited to welcome John to our international group of experts,” said Frank Holder, the Global Head of BRG’s Investigations and Strategic Intelligence practice. “His expertise in conducting high-profile corporate and white collar investigations is a tremendous asset.”
Auerbach has over twenty years of experience managing complex domestic and international corporate investigations, compliance assessments and pre-M&A due diligence. He specializes in corporate integrity issues related to anti-bribery and corruption, third-party risk management, anti-money laundering and financial fraud.
Before joining BRG, Auerbach was a partner in a Big Four Forensic and Integrity Services group. He was managing partner of that firm’s forensic practice in Greater China for nine years before returning to its US forensic practice in New York in 2014. Previously, he was a managing director with a corporate investigations and risk consulting firm and head of the firm’s mainland China practice. He is a fluent Mandarin speaker and a widely recognized subject-matter expert and public speaker on issues related to fraud, corruption and operational risk management in China.
Auerbach has directed numerous investigations and compliance reviews in response to US Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, and overseas regulatory enforcement actions—from Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations to securities fraud and accounting restatement matters. He has particular experience with matters in the life sciences, financial services, consumer product and technology sectors.
“I am very excited to join one of the world’s most dynamic investigations consultancies in BRG, and to bring my experience to bear in expanding its innovative global platform,” said Auerbach.
