Gary commenced his career in Forensic when he joined KPMG’s Canadian firm from his native South Africa in 1995. The role models that he had the pleasure to work with then have been powerful influences since that time. Gary points out that there are courses and formal areas in Forensic training but unravelling increasingly complex deceptions and the human reasoning behind them takes more than theory. It takes experience. Lots of experience. And that is something Gary has in spades.
Gary’s experience draws from his work with clients from all industry sectors in Australia, Asia, Canada, the US, Africa, the Caribbean and Eastern Europe. He has conducted investigations into major financial frauds involving senior management, bribery and corruption incidents and led a variety of financial crime risk management and anti-money laundering advisory engagements. Gary is adamant that there is always a reason behind a crime. Greed, revenge or an addiction – the reasons are the same the world over, but every case is different. It’s what’s kept him sleuthing for so long.
