Cendrowski Corporate Advisors Deepens White Collar, Investigative & Anti-Fraud Expertise

May 15, 2019

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2019--

Cendrowski Corporate Advisors (CCA) – a leading accounting, litigation support, risk management, tax, and compliance consulting firm – today added to its investigative, anti-fraud, money laundering, internal investigations, and asset forfeiture capabilities with the launch of an alliance with Chicago-headquartered Ron Braver and Associates LLC.

Braver and his firm bring more than three decades of combined Federal law enforcement and private sector consulting experience with a focus on high-profile investigations involving criminal tax matters, failed banks and savings and loans, bankruptcies, and fraud across a range of issues including securities, mortgage, healthcare, foreign exchange as well as embezzlement. He is a former Special Agent and Supervisory Special Agent of the IRS – Criminal Investigation division and was a senior manager in the forensic accounting and investigative services practice of Grant Thornton LLP.

“Confronting today’s sophisticated frauds and corporate malfeasance takes a level of expertise that isn’t easy to find,” Harry Cendrowski, CCA Managing Director, said, “and through our alliance with Ron and his firm, we’ve done just that. As our Chicago office continues to expand, Ron is a force multiplier that meets our client’s growing need for exceptional investigative prowess.”

Braver added: “I’ve known the Cendrowski team by reputation for years, and have seen many of their expert reports in prior matters where we were mutually involved – and I’m looking forward to expanding the investigatory and financial tools they can deploy for their clients across a wide range of sectors.”

As a 26-year veteran of the IRS criminal investigation team – the bulk of it in Chicago – Braver’s investigations led to approximately 75 guilty pleas/convictions and more than $41 million in forfeiture and fines. He joined Grant Thornton LLP in 2010 and founded Ron Braver and Associates LLC in 2012.

Across his career, Braver has received 25 awards and commendation letters, including a 2006 nomination for Federal Employee of the Year, the recipient of the prestigious Albert Gallatin award, and numerous other exceptional performance awards.

He is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), Certified Anti Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS), and a licensed Private Detective in Illinois.

He holds an M.S. in Taxation from DePaul University and a B.S. in Accounting from Truman State University (formally known as Northeast Missouri State University).
