At TfL, Robert managed a team of investigators, prevention staff and data analysts dealing with issues such as online fraud, security breaches, cybercrime and insider threats, reporting to the Executive Committee and Board. Prior to this, Robert worked at Bentley Jennison (now RSM) and Watford Borough Council.
Robert is also Chair of the London Fraud Forum, previous Vice Chair of the Society of Forensic Interviewers (SoFI) and a member of Prevention of Fraud in Travel (ProFIT).
Robert will lead PKF Littlejohn’s Forensic and Fraud team alongside James Earp. He will focus on providing clients with a wide range of services, including data analytics-based fraud risk management, fraud risk workshops and procurement investigations.
James said: “We’re seeing growing demand for our Forensic and Fraud services, so now is the right time to expand the team with another highly-respected specialist. Robert’s expertise is widely recognised throughout the industry and he’s the ideal person to help me lead our fast-growing operation.
“The cost of fraud to organisations is growing each year. Protecting yourself against fraud and reacting effectively to fraud has never been more important.
“I’m looking forward to working with Robert to grow our Forensic and Fraud team and ensuring that our clients continue to get the best advice available.”
