Line-up Announced for White Collar Crimes Panel

jail The Wake Forest University Schools of Business is hosting a panel on white collar crime on March 26 at the Benson Center.

Fraudulent scandals in previously well respected companies such as Enron, WorldCom, AIG, Bernard Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Satyam Computer Services have shaken the nation’s faith in the business community. It is reported that the U.S. government loses $300-$660 billion each year to white collar crime schemes, investigations, and prosecution. Companies, investors, taxpayers and society as a whole feel the consequences of these violations.

On Monday, the university unveiled its list of high-caliber panelists, including two former business executives who committed white collar crimes, and leading experts in forensic accounting and the financial sector. The panel will feature:

  • Neil Weinberg, senior editor, Forbes, and co-author of “Stolen without a Gun:  Confessions from inside history’s biggest accounting fraud - the collapse of MCI WorldCom”
  • Tom Golden, retired forensic accounting partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers; author of “A Guide
    to Forensic Accounting Investigation”
  • Diann Cattani, prevention/detection consultant, director of business development, Audigence Inc.; contributing author of Taking the Harder Right
  • Justin Paperny, former securities broker, Bear Stearns/UBS; author of “Lessons from Prison”
